* Provisional figures. Week 46 in 2021 is an estimate.

Higher mortality among long-term care users

There were more than 1,500 deaths in this group, approximately 425 more than expected. There has been excess mortality among long-term care users since week 42 (mid-October).

The number of deaths among the rest of the population also increased slightly in week 46, based on the estimate. There were approximately 2,300 deaths among the rest of the population, around 450 more than expected. In this group as well, there has been excess mortality since week 42, although this was also already the case in some of the preceding weeks.

* Provisional figures. Week 46 in 2021 is an estimate.

COVID-19 mortality known until June

The figures on (excess) mortality are based on reports on the number of deaths received daily from the municipalities by CBS. These reports do not contain any information about the cause of death. CBS receives such information at a later stage via death cause certificates. The cause of death is known for all deceased persons up to and including June 2021. According to these figures, 31,384 people died of COVID-19 between March 2020 and June 2021, as published by CBS on 4 November.

Data sources for RIVM

To date, RIVM has registered 19,047 COVID-19 deaths, of which 17,766 were recorded up to June 2021 inclusive (as at 23 November 2021). RIVM receives data on confirmed COVID-19 deaths from the municipal health services (GGD) around the country on a daily basis. The actual COVID-19-related death count in the Netherlands is higher than these estimates for the following reasons: it is possible that not all people with COVID-19 have themselves tested, there is no reporting obligation for COVID-19 and registration sometimes takes a little longer.

Estimate for week 46

The figures for week 46 are estimates, based on 82 percent of the overall number of death records to be received by CBS. CBS will publish provisional weekly mortality figures for week 46 on Friday 3 December. The figures will be more complete by then.
