In the Netherlands, the number of new COVID-19 cases doubled in a week


In the Netherlands, an increase in the number of patients with coronavirus has been recorded. During the week, the number of new cases almost doubled: from 534 to 987.

This was reported by a Ukrinform correspondent in The Hague with reference to the publication WE.

The publication adds that the percentage of positive tests has increased by two thirds. The infection rate rose to 1.29. This means that 100 patients with coronavirus infect 129 other people. It is noted that the spread of the virus slows down only if this figure is below 1.

The publication adds that now there is a risk for the country to lose control over the spread of the virus. According to epidemiological investigations, most of the new infected became infected at parties, in cafes and at work. Mostly these are patients from 20 to 40 years.
