Every day NU.nl provides an overview of the most recent figures on the development of the corona virus in the Netherlands. These are the figures that are now available (Saturday, March 27), brought together in six graphs.
Again more positive tests (8,868) and an increasing average (7239)
RIVM will report 8,868 new positive tests on Saturday. That is again more than the average over the past seven days (7,239). The average number in the past seven days has also increased by more than 200 compared to yesterday. This number is increasing due to the increase in the past 24 hours. In the past 24 hours, 1,260 more positive tests were taken than in the previous 24 hours.
The health institute also reports 29 new corona-related deaths. That’s four more than on Friday. Not all of these patients have died in the past 24 hours; there may be a delay between the reporting date and the date of death.
The table below shows the average of the past seven days, as well as the number of reported infections per day.
Number of established infections per day
Largest number of patients in hospitals since February 3
There are currently 2,238 corona patients in Dutch hospitals, 17 more than Friday.
The ICs have a total of 643 patients, an increase of 18 in the past 24 hours. There are now 1,595 corona patients on the nursing wards, down from one in the past 24 hours.
The number of patients on the IC has now exceeded 600 for a week. Before that, it went back and forth between 550 and 600 for about two weeks, and the previous month the number fluctuated between 500 and 550.

Different clusters of infections in the country
The corona virus has spread throughout the Netherlands. The number of infections per 100,000 inhabitants is currently relatively high, especially in East Groningen, the head of North Holland and the central Netherlands.
The numbers fluctuate on a daily basis. The number of red areas is increasing rapidly. The data per municipality will appear when you click on a municipality in the map.
Infections per municipality
Most deaths in age category 85 to 89 years
The elderly are relatively hard hit by the corona virus. 66 percent of the corona patients who died were older than eighty. More than 81 percent were 75 years or older.
Most corona patients who died (23.5 percent) were between 85 and 89 years old. According to the RIVM, one baby has died of COVID-19 so far. The child also suffered from other underlying medical conditions.
The infographic below shows the number of infections and the number of deaths per age group. Blue stands for infections and red for deaths.
Fatalities and infections by age category
More men than women died of the virus
RIVM receives more reports about men who died of COVID-19 than about female corona patients who died. Since February 27, 8,837 men have died from the effects of the virus, compared to 7,502 women.
In contrast, women tested positive for the virus more often than men. The RIVM reports 644,682 positive tests among women, while 568,593 men received a positive test result in the same time frame.
This difference may be partly due to the overrepresentation of women in care professions. At the start of the corona crisis, not everyone could be tested due to the limited testing capacity and it was mainly the health care personnel that were tested.

With the current vaccination rate, someone gets an injection every 1.3 seconds on average, according to data from the corona dashboard. That is more than 35,000 per day.
