Update 03:30 – RIVM publishes corona figures, including data that missed Saturday

The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) will publish new figures on the development of the corona virus in the Netherlands on Sunday afternoon. Due to ICT problems at the GGDs, the figures were incomplete on Saturday. The RIVM reported 8,669 positive test results. In reality there were more.

Data that was missing will be added to the figures released by RIVM on Sunday. These will therefore also give a distorted picture, but will turn out higher than would have been the case without the computer problems.

On Friday, the RIVM registered 9996 positive tests. That number was initially slightly higher at 10,007, but was corrected on Saturday.

The number of infections continued to increase last week, despite the tightened corona measures. They took effect on Wednesday, October 14 at 10 p.m. The figures from the RIVM can say something about the effectiveness of the corona policy, although it must always take some time to draw conclusions.

Saturday was the tenth day on which the latest measures, including the closure of the catering industry, were in effect all day. According to the RIVM, 99 percent of infected people who develop symptoms develop within ten days of infection. It could therefore be that some people who contracted the coronavirus last Wednesday, only had health problems at the beginning of this weekend and still have to get tested.

However, complaints usually arise after five or six days, according to the RIVM. Many people may have already been tested who contracted the virus after the tightening.
