Number of reported deaths from COVID-19 over time

This graph shows the number of reported deaths from COVID-19, in the selected period of time.

Mortality monitor

Every week the national office Statistics Netherlands (CBS) publishes data on the total number of deaths in the Netherlands and compares this to the predicted number of deaths, corrected for extreme temperatures, epidemics, etc. If more deaths occur than predicted, these are considered excess deaths. This graph may show a more complete picture of COVID-19 related deaths than the numbers reported by the GGD because not everyone who dies from COVID-19 has been tested for it.

Almost 4 thousand deaths in first week of 2021

Estimated mortality in week 2021 (4 to 10 January 2021 inclusive) stood at almost 4 thousand. This is 650 deaths in excess of the expected number for this period. Mortality in the last week of 2020 (28 December 2020 to 3 January 2021 inclusive) stood at over 4 thousand; this was 800 more than expected mortality. In 2020, the total number of deaths stood at almost 169 thousand, which is more than 15 thousand excess deaths. Statistics Netherlands (CBS) reports this based on the provisional weekly figures on mortality.

Total number of deaths per week

This graph shows the total number of deaths per week in the Netherlands in 2020. The actual number of deaths is compared to the number of deaths predicted based on the figures from preceding years. The light blue line, drawn within its range of uncertainty, shows the number of deaths predicted over the year. The dark blue line shows the number of actual deaths. Please note that week 53 is currently not correctly displaying the actual number of deceased persons. This is because in the source data of CBS the week has been split into two. We are currently working to correctly show this week on the dashboard.
