First weekly coronavirus update: 19 people die, 432 new cases

The RIVM has published the first weekly update for coronavirus numbers in the Netherlands for today, July 7.

This is the first update since daily updates stopped on July 1.

The newest count reveals an additional 432 cases detected over the last week. In total, since the outbreak began in February, there’s been 50,694 cases of coronavirus in the Netherlands.

Severe cases of coronavirus have lead to nine people being hospitalised.

Unfortunately, the virus continues to cause casualties. 19 more people have died since last week, and the virus has claimed the lives of 6,132 people throughout the country.

Coronavirus crisis impacts dating and sex life, singles most affected

Besides the economic and healthcare crisis caused by the coronavirus, there’s been another impact. The dating and sex life of Dutch people has changed, with single people being the most affected.
In general, there’s been less physical dating between people, which is in all honesty understandable. Porn consumption and masturbation has gone up among youngsters. People have also done fewer STD tests, out of concerns of getting infected at hospitals with coronavirus and because of the fear that hospital staff is already busy with treating corona patients.
