Almost twice as many people have died from coronavirus as the government records on its ‘dashboard’ according to the latest death figures from Dutch statistics office CBS.
The latest CBS figures on Covid-19 mortality from March 2020 until the end of May 2022, based on death certificates, record 44,485 deaths in the Netherlands. The Dutch government coronavirus dashboard continues to report public health institute RIVM records of ‘total dead Covid-19 patients’, which stood at 22,663 on October 4.
In three of the four weeks in September, there were more deaths than would be expected in a normal year, with a total of around 3,100 people passing away. There were especially high numbers amongst people in care, the over-65s and women.
