Netherlands: Daily cases at 11,141, hit new record

The number of coronavirus infections surged by a record high of 11,141 since yesterday's update to reach 341,396 in the Netherlands, the National Institute for Public Health (RIVM) unveiled on Friday. The number of confirmed cases rose 13% on a weekly level to 50,212 this week, official data showed.

Meanwhile, the nation's death toll increased by 87 to 7,345 in the past 24 hours, marking the biggest jump in COVID-19 fatalities since late April.

"For the third day in a row, we are seeing a leveling off in the occupancy of clinical beds by Covid-19 patients. That is beneficial, and may be the first effect of the measures that were introduced more than two weeks ago," National Acute Care Network's head Ernst Kuipers stated.
