The national Institute for public Health and the Environment (RIVM) concluded, Wednesday, with caution, that the number of new coronabesmettingen in the Netherlands seems to be stabilising. A lot of people have responded critically, as only a small proportion of people with symptoms are being tested. The GOVERNMENT looked for such a conclusion, however, is not the total number of results, but the patients admitted to hospital, was found on Wednesday in a broadcast of Nieuwsuur.

as for The GOVERNMENT, drew the conclusion: “when you look at the first day of illness of the patients that were included,” says health and safety boss, Jaap van Dissel. “It will be carefully investigated in the Netherlands, which means that this is a fairly reliable measure, but it is still a guess, and that it should ultimately be useful.”

as Though, indeed, not every sick person in the Netherlands to be tested, to be patient with corona virus-like symptoms have almost all of them will be tested. So, more or less, people with medical problems in the hospital, and end up, more or less, and other people comparatively will also be infected at a time.

as Of the Tongue: “generally speaking, everybody in the hospitals, however, will be tested. You will also have hospitals, which have a computed tomography (CT) scan in order to make a diagnosis. It may be that, in a number of cases, are missing, but the vast majority of the bulk, we can assume that the decline that we see there is a real decline.”

‘Aansteekcijfer it was a two-for-one < / p> The GOVERNMENT is looking at the so-called reproductiegetal that will show you how many others an infected person for about have been infected. “On average, it is true that one or two other people, light. We know that are discounted, on the basis of the first illness of the included patients, and it turns out that in the past two days, however, has been declining.”

The reproductiegetal is due to the national measures has decreased from two to one, according to the figures. “The big question is: what is the number?”

From the Pole goes on to say: “It is possible that, due to events such as last weekend’s, when people in large numbers with each other, and to the nature, the beach, the reproductiegetal a temporary back up.” As a result, it is intended that all of the measures, in spite of the careful the good news.

a Patient can have the whole month on the ic are located
in Addition, fear of the Dutch Society of Intensive Care (NVIC) will still assume that the capacity of the number of icu beds in the Netherlands is low. The NVIC is expected that the ic peak is in late may and will be.

From the Pole is that it makes sense: “If a person is infected, he will have an incubation period of between a few days up to twelve days, an individual will become ill. It will take a week for this person to go to the hospital, and then again for a couple of days before he can get to the more intensive care needs. And then it can be a month, a bed is occupied, keep it on the ic,” he says.

“Well, you would now be a levelling off in the number of cases, it will take a long time before we get on to the ic mode and the total load on the ic’s are going to look like.”
