35 Limburgers succumbed to coronavirus in 48 hours

Sittard –

Between Friday and Sunday afternoon, 35 people from Limburg died from the consequences of the corona virus. In the same period, 37 people with symptoms of illness reported to the hospital. The number of people tested positive rose by 104 to a total of 3955.

This is evident from figures from the GGDs in South Limburg and Limburg North. The numbers deviate slightly from those of RIVM, which reports 26 deaths in Limburg over the same 48 hours. This is because there is sometimes a delay in reporting a death.

According to the GGDs, 589 Limburgers have succumbed to the lung disease until Sunday afternoon. The counter of the number of Limburgers who have tested positive for the corona virus is now at 3955; 2402 in South Limburg and 1553 in North Limburg. The total number of people who have been or have been in the hospital comes to 1547.

Across the Netherlands, according to RIVM, 4,475 people have died from the coronavirus. There were 120 on Saturday. 66 deaths were reported on Sunday, the lowest since the peak at the end of March. The number of people tested positive has risen to 37,845 and the number of hospital admissions / visits is at 10,456. The actual number of infections and deaths is higher, because not all corona patients can be tested.

The figures of the past few days match the picture that the measures are working, according to RIVM. Both the number of new reports per day and the number of reported deceased patients show a decreasing trend. The so-called excess mortality is also decreasing. RIVM and Statistics Netherlands compare the number of deaths in a week with the average number of deaths in the first ten weeks of this year, because the corona virus had not yet broken out in the Netherlands.

Every day we get a lot of questions about the updates we bring regarding the corona virus. We have collected the most frequently asked questions below:

Why don’t you publish figures on the number of patients healed?

That is not known at the moment. There is no obligation to report that people have been cured from the disease. A person who has no complaints for 24 hours is considered cured. These figures are therefore not maintained by RIVM.

Why is there a deviation between the figures of the RIVM and the GGD?

RIVM collects data from the regional GGDs and publishes this in a daily update. We have regular contact with the GGD Noord-Limburg and Zuid-Limburg to request an up-to-date score. These figures are often slightly ahead of the figures published daily by RIVM. This may cause an interim difference between the figures of RIVM, the GGD and possibly other (Limburg) media.

How should I interpret these numbers?

The number of reported patients and deceased patients may differ per day for various reasons. For example, we see that deceased patients are not always reported on the same day. The actual number of infections with the new coronavirus is higher than the number mentioned here. This is because not everyone is tested with a possible infection, but especially patients who are so ill that they are hospitalized and people who work in healthcare.
