The figures come from the American website Worldometer, which adds up all available data. The United States has been the most affected country for some time now, with more than 157,000 corona deaths and more than 4.7 million infections. To date, just over 54,700 infections and 6,148 deaths have been registered in the Netherlands.
The official figures do not fully reflect the magnitude of the outbreak. For example, not every country tests equally intensively. Countries also often register differently.
