Coronavirus update: The Netherlands passes 5,000 coronavirus deaths

The latest count of coronavirus cases in the Netherlands has been published by the RIVM.

As of today, there are now 335 more cases of coronavirus, bringing the total to 40,571 cases.

In regards to hospitalizations, there are 44 more patients in hospitals, bringing the total to 10,995.

There have been unfortunately 69 more deaths since last count, bringing the number of deaths to 5,056.

As you’re probably aware by now, these numbers may not be totally accurate, as deaths and hospitalisations are not always reported on the day they take place. Each Tuesday, the tally for the week before becomes accurate.


Now, as it’s a Sunday, we thought we’d share some articles that might make this self isolating Sunday a bit more enjoyable for you. From a way to keep busy to an uplifting story from Leeuwarden, check out these two articles to take your mind off the current situation. 

How one artist’s creativity is keeping Leeuwarden’s spirits up

Art has the capacity to bring us together in solidarity, especially in times of crisis.

Such was the plan of a Chilean born artist in Leeuwarden named Cote Veragua. Throughout the city, she set up supportive messages in chalk in English, Dutch and Frisian, reflective of the city’s diverse nature.

Not only that, but she also offered her support to local businesses, by putting up art on their windows, as a way of promoting their businesses, especially the ones that were hard-hit by the coronavirus crisis.
