Prevent COVID in the Netherlands.
According to official figures, new infections this week decreased by 44% compared to the previous week.
Overall, around 21,000 people have tested positive for the coronavirus, compared to more than 37,000 in the past seven days. This fall is a result of the re-establishment of restrictions that were lifted a few weeks ago.
“We think we have reached the peak or we will very soon,” says Susan van den Hoff of the National Institute of Public Health. “We will soon see a decrease in the number of hospitalizations as well. We know that the number of hospitalizations always falls with the trend that we see positive tests. This is in line with what we expected.”
