A total of 76,790 people were diagnosed with the new coronavirus last week in the Netherlands, a 45% increase over the previous seven days, the Dutch National Institute of Public Health (RIVM) said on Tuesday.
Admissions of patients with COVID-19 to hospitals reached 1,137 per week from 3 to 9 November (+ 18% on a weekly basis). 204 of them (+ 40%) had to be admitted to intensive care units (ICU).
Cases of SARS-CoV-2 have increased in all regions of the country and in all age groups.
In the past 24 hours, the RIVM recorded 11,532 cases; the number of infections remained above the 10,000 mark for the sixth consecutive day. However, it remained below the 2021 record, the 12,024 cases diagnosed on November 6th. The weekly moving average is almost 11,000 infections (exactly 10,970) on a daily basis.
The dramatic increase in cases pushed a group of hospitals to call yesterday the government to take action (24908771).
