The number of corona patients currently in Dutch hospitals has fallen further in the past 24 hours.
On Christmas Day, 1978 people are hospitalized with Covid-19, according to the most recent figures from the National Coordination Center for Patients Spreading (LCPS). That is 148 less than a day earlier.
A total of 534 people are now being treated in intensive care units. That is 12 less than Friday. However, 22 new corona patients have been admitted to the IC. Because more people died or were allowed to leave the departments, the occupation went down.
The nursing wards currently care for 1444 corona patients, a decrease of 136 compared to the day before. The number of new admissions here was 161, but because more people also left the wards, the occupation fell anyway. The number of new admissions to the nursing wards was higher than the day before, when another 145 were added.
On November 14, the total number of Covid patients admitted with 1,863 was lower than now for the last time.
