This monitoring method is still being developed. We hope wastewater monitoring will help us to detect and track the virus more effectively in the future. Read more about this research programme on the website of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).
Average number of coronavirus particles per 100,000 inhabitants
An average is calculated based on all the wastewater measurements collected in one week. It also takes account of how many inhabitants are served by a specific wastewater treatment plant, and how much of the wastewater flowing to the plant comes from the safety region.
Number of measurements per week
30 of the 34 sampling locations reported at least one measurement in the given week.
Sampling locations can report multiple measurements per week. The number of measurements used per location per week can differ because not all measurements are successful.
Average number of virus particles over time (per 100,000 inhabitants)
- Weekly average for safety region
- Individual measurements
