Deaths

These figures show the number of COVID-19 patients reported dead to the GGD yesterday. The actual number of COVID-19 patients that died may be higher because not all people with COVID-19 get tested and there is no requirement for reporting deaths due to COVID-19.

COVID-19 deaths by age

The blue bars on the right of this graph show the age distribution of people who have died with COVID 19. The grey bars on the left show how large each age group is in relation to the entire Dutch population. Taken together, the blue and grey bars show whether there are proportionately more or fewer COVID-19 deaths in each age group. If, for example, the graph shows that people in their sixties represent 12% of the Dutch population (grey bar) and that this same group represents 10% of the people in the Netherlands who have died with COVID-19 (blue bar), that means there are proportionately fewer deaths with COVID-19 among people in their sixties. The graph is updated daily and includes all deaths since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please note that RIVM groups COVID-19 deaths among people younger than 50 together; the low numbers could otherwise be traceable back to individual people.

Mortality monitor

Every week the national office Statistics Netherlands (CBS) publishes data on the total number of deaths 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.

No news report on weekly mortality for week 13

There will be no news release on weekly mortality on 9 April 2021 because of Easter. The Easter break leads to a shift in delivery of death records, as commonly occurs around public holidays; therefore, an estimate will not be available for week 13 on 9 April. The next news release with the estimate for week 14 and provisional figures up to and including week 13 will be published on Friday 16 April.

Total number of deaths per week

This graph shows the total number of deaths per week. 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.
