Dutch official corona death toll hits 1,487, but real total is higher | Dutch News |

The number of patients admitted to hospital with coronavirus has risen by 502 to 6,286 in the latest update from the public health institute RIVM.

In total, 148 more people have died, taking the death toll to 1,487, while 15,723 people have tested positive for the virus, a rise of over 1,000 on Thursday.

Figures published by the national statistics office CBS on Friday indicate that coronavirus is having a significant impact on the wider weekly death figures which the two agencies have compiled since the 2009 flu epidemic.

Figures relating to the period 19-25 March indicate that between 870 and 1181 more people died than would have been expected, the RIVM said. At this time of year, some 2,700 to 3,000 people die every week.
