Despite the continued decline in recorded infections, the number of Covid-19 patients in hospital reached their highest levels in 12 weeks.

Currently, a total of 2,558 people are affected by the coronavirus, 60 more than Tuesday, but 776 patients are receiving intensive care, the most in 11 months.

According to the latest statistics from the public health agency RIVM, nearly two-thirds of the available intensive care units are currently occupied by Covid-19 patients.

From Wednesday 24 hours to 10 am, an additional 6,409 positive tests were recorded. This is more than Tuesday, but 16% less than a week ago. The Easter Monday holiday may have influenced the number of tests processed at the beginning of the week.

Over the last 7 days, recorded infections have decreased by 9.4%, but the percentage of positive tests has increased slightly to 9%.

An additional 23 coronavirus-related deaths have been identified in the last 24 hours, compared to an average of 19 in the last 7 days. A week ago, an average of 24 deaths were recorded daily.

The number of nursing home cases continues to decline, with 188 reported new infections at least once in the last two weeks, compared to 203 one week ago.
