As the Netherlands gears up to further lift coronavirus restrictions from Monday, RIVM released the latest figures for coronavirus in Holland.
The latest count shows a further 176 people have tested positive for coronavirus. This is expected to dramatically increase from Monday, when everyone with mild symptoms can be tested.
Over the past day, 28 people have sadly been confirmed dead from COVID-19. It brings the total Dutch death toll to 5,931.
Meanwhile, 9 people have been admitted to the hospital.
On Monday, the Netherlands enters the next phase of the gradual lifting of the intelligent lockdown. While the basic measures of social distancing and hand washing still apply, cafes, bars, restaurants, public transport, museums, theatres, cinemas, high schools and some other areas will begin the transition to the ‘new normal.’
