Development of the virus
The number of Infectieradar participants with a positive corona test result decreased slightly to 1.4%.
The national average number of virus particles decreased (-27%) in week 11 (13 - 19 March). The number of virus particles slightly increased (+10%) in the first half of week 12 (20 - 22 March).
XBB (including XBB.1.5 and XBB.1.9) is responsible for most infections. It does not appear that these sub-variants are more pathogenic than the earlier Omicron variants.

In week 12, an average of 132 COVID patients per day were admitted to the hospital's nursing wards. This is an average of 35 patients less than in week 11.
Occupation intensive care
The percentage of ICU beds with COVID patients almost remained the same at 4.2% of all ICU beds. The percentage of ICU beds with COVID patients decreased slightly to 6.0% of the total number of occupied ICU beds.
Pressure on healthcare sector
In the nursing departments of hospitals, the availability of care is under pressure. This is partly due to the absence of staff. Absenteeism among healthcare staff in the nursing wards and ICU remained the same at 7.8%.
