Dutch coronavirus death toll rises by 2, hospital admissions by 3
The official Dutch coronavirus death toll rose by just two overnight on Thursday the public health institute RIVM said.
This takes the official death toll to 6,044 although the real figure, including people who have not been tested, could be some 30% higher.
In addition, three more people were admitted to hospital with coronavirus, the lowest figure since mid March.
A further 164 people have tested positive for the virus. The number of positive tests has increased since screening was opened up to everyone with symptoms on June 1.
The regional health board association said on Thursday that the 100,000th appointment for a coronavirus test since mass testing started has now been made. Around 2% of people tested so far have proved to be positive.
