There were 26% fewer new hospital admissions of patients with COVID-19 last week compared to the week before.

There were 25% fewer new patients with COVID-19 admitted to ICU compared to the previous week. Fewer positive test results were reported last week* than the week before that (-11%)**.

As of this week, the Omicron variant is causing more than half of infections, making it the dominant SARS-CoV-2 variant in the Netherlands. The more rapid spread of this variant will lead to additional infections, which in turn will lead to a new increase in the number of hospital admissions.

The new measures that took effect on 19 December 2021 are intended to help minimise the expected additional pressure on the healthcare system as a result of the Omicron variant.
Prevent the spread of the virus and help to prevent more hospital admissions by following the basic measures,even if you are vaccinated and even if you have had a booster vaccination.

Hospital admissions and ICU admissions

The number of people with COVID-19 who were admitted to hospital decreased by 26% last week compared to the week before, dropping to 1,063 new hospital admissions. 191 new patients with COVID-19 were admitted to ICU last week, 65 fewer new patients than in the week before (-25%).

The downward trend in hospital admissions is an effect of the measures that started on 28 November, including the evening lockdown. The effect of the measures that started on 19 December is expected to be visible by early January 2022.

Due to the extended treatment period required for COVID-19 patients, pressure on hospitals remains high.

All the weekly COVID-19 figures are presented in a table and in graphs on the RIVM website.
