The Netherlands reported 112 COVID-19 deaths from Thursday to Friday, the first time its single-day fatalities topped 100, according to the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) .

The total number of patients that died from COVID-19 in the Netherlands rose to 546 and the tally of reported infections increased by 1,172 to 8,603 on Friday. The total number of patients who are or have been admitted to hospital increased by 339 to 2,500.

“The number of patients admitted to hospital and the number of deaths are increasing less than you would expect without the measures taken,” the RIVM stated in a press release, adding “If this line continues, it can be concluded in a few days whether the measures taken, keeping distance, limiting social contact, washing hands, are working.” Enditem
