November 3, 2020

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The Netherlands reported coronavirus cases fell by 5%, the first decrease in weeks.

Dutch public health institute says confirmed coronavirus cases in the past seven days went from 67,542 to 64,087. However, the number of confirmed deaths rose from 329 to 435.

The drop in cases came three weeks after the government ordered lockdown measures, including closing all bars and restaurants, halting amateur sports for adults and urging people to work from home.

Health officials are concerned the number of coronavirus patients is putting a strain on hospitals. Admissions for the coronavirus in the past week rose from 1,739 to 1,966, while intensive care unit admissions declined slightly to 321.

The percentage of positive tests declined from 18.4% to 16.6% in a week.

The nation of 17 million has more than 382,400 confirmed cases and more than 7,600 deaths, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.


LONDON (AP) — The pharma giant AstraZeneca has requested that the European authorization for its COVID-19 vaccine be pulled, according to the EU medicines regulator.
