Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Weekly coronavirus infections rise 500% with 13.4% positivity rate

Some 51,957 people in the Netherlands tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus over the past seven days, more than 500 percent higher than the result a week ago.

About 13.4 percent of people tested were diagnosed with the infection, compared to 4.6 percent a week earlier.

The RIVM said 37 percent of traced infections were likely acquired at a bar, cafe or restaurant. Roughly 15 percent were tied to a party, 16 percent to a visit to another household, and seven percent were contracted at the office.

Additionally, 2,269 of those who tested positive last week traveled within 14 days of their positive test. The top destinations were Spain (794), Portugal (333), Belgium (219), France (204), and Germany (172).
