COVID-19 update: 321 cases in the Netherlands, 56 new today

As predicted, coronavirus numbers in the Netherlands have increased even more by 56 cases, adding to yesterday’s count of 265. This brings the total number of COVID-19 infections to 321, according to RIVM

Most of the infections come from Brabant and subsequently Utrecht which now has 52 coronavirus cases. Yikes.

That being said, yesterday 77 cases were added to the total– today’s number is slightly less. Hopefully numbers tomorrow will continue in this direction.

Heading towards a recession?

According to Bloomberg, the coronavirus could bring recessions in the US, eurozone and Japan, slow growth in China – and could possibly mean a loss of $2.7 trillion in output (which is equal to the the UK’s total GDP).

Supply and demand have slowed in China which is already affecting other countries, since China plays a critical role in global trade.

According to the NOS, Prime Minister Rutte claims that the Dutch economy is strong enough to handle any damage the virus might cause. Let’s hope there’s truth to this.
