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.

Number of reported deaths from COVID-19 over time

This graph shows the number of COVID-19 patients reported dead, in the selected period. The graph also shows averages over the past seven days. Data for the most recent days is incomplete. The line of the average over the last seven days is therefore not shown in this part of the graph, because it does not give a good picture of reality.

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.

Excess mortality again in week 22

In week 22 (31 May to 6 June 2021 inclusive), the estimated number of deaths stood at nearly 3,000. This is approximately 200 more than expected for this period and over 200 more than in the previous week (2,777). There were mainly more deaths among the elderly. Statistics Netherlands (CBS) reports this based on the latest provisional weekly mortality figures. From mid-September (week 39) up to and including mid-February (week 6), weekly mortality was higher than expected. There was excess mortality until mid-January (week 3). In the following weeks, mortality was not elevated and fluctuated around the expected numbers for that period. In the last week of April (week 17), there was a short period of excess mortality, but since then mortality has continued to decline. The estimate for week 22 is around 200 deaths above the expected number and outside the range of usual fluctuations. This means there is excess mortality based on the estimate. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) registered 51 COVID-19 deaths in week 22 (as at 8 June).

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.
