Number of confirmed cases

2,143.1 lower than the average of the past 7 days (5,047.1)

This number shows how many confirmed cases were reported yesterday. Part of this number are positive tests of previous days, that have been reported later.

Due to an ICT issue at the GGD, the RIVM has not received all confirmed cases. Today’s number is therefore incomplete. In reality, it is higher. Therefore, numbers of the next few days will be higher.

11.5% of the test results at GGD test locations had a positive result between Sunday, 9 May and Saturday, 15 May.
