Distribution by age

The blue (right) bars in this graph show which age group positive tested persons belong to. The gray (left) bars show how large each age group is in relation to the entire Dutch population. The blue and gray bars together show whether age groups have relatively more or less positive tested persons. For example: 16% of all positive tested persons are in their twenties (blue bar) and 13% of all Dutch people are in their twenties (gray bar). In this example, the age group twenties has relatively more positive tested people. The chart is updated daily and covers only the most recently reported cases.

Percentage of positive test results at GGD test locations

An increase in the percentage of positive tests could be an indication that transmission of the virus is on the rise. Please note that most but not all tests are conducted by the GGD. This means that the total number of people who have tested positive differs from the number of people who have tested positive at GGD test locations.
