This is how the coronavirus spread through the Netherlands – check your municipality

The corona epidemic in the Netherlands officially started on February 27, when an infection was first detected in a resident of Loon op Zand. From then on, the number of infections increased rapidly. At the end of March, more than 10,000 infections had already been identified.

The number of hospital admissions also rose sharply in that period: on the worst day, March 27, 611 patients were admitted to hospital. From April, the spread slowly began to slow down.

However, the infections are not spread all over the country: it soon became clear that the spread of the virus was concentrated in East Brabant and North Limburg. The map below, which starts on March 30, clearly shows that area.

Choirs and church services

In April, the virus spread further and further across the country. A new fireplace was created on the edge of the Veluwe. Church services and choirs may have played a role in this distribution. These municipalities still have an above-average number of hospital admissions.

The spread of the coronavirus is also still above average in large cities. In the past week, a total of 49 hospital admissions were reported in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and The Hague. Compared to the number of inhabitants, this is almost twice as high as in the Netherlands as a whole.

There are only a few municipalities that have so far completely escaped the corona virus: no contamination has yet been detected on the Wadden Islands of Vlieland, Schiermonnikoog and Ameland.
