Model study on effectiveness of the CoronaMelder app

In its first few months, the CoronaMelder app made a positive but minor contribution to controlling the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. This is the conclusion of an RIVM evaluation of the effect of CoronaMelder in combination with testing and standard source and contact tracing.

The effect of the app between 1 December 2020 and 31 March 2021 was estimated using modelling. From 1 December 2020 to 31 March 2021, 7514 people tested positive for COVID-19 after a notification from the CoronaMelder app. It is estimated that these notifications prevented over 15,000 infections. The R number (the average number of new infections caused by an infected person) was 12.7% lower due to the combination of testing, standard source and contact tracing and the CoronaMelder app. The app contributed 0.3% to this percentage.

About 3.1 million vaccinations have been given by now. Most of the reported symptoms are in line with side-effects that were already known. Since the start of the vaccination campaign, Lareb has received a total of 225 reports regarding deaths shortly after receiving the COVID-19 vaccinations. Most of the reports involved the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. It is the COVID-19 vaccine that has been used most frequently, and is also the vaccine used mainly for the elderly. A news item on their website announced that existing health problems were the most likely cause of death in the majority of the reports.

The number of newly reported infections that RIVM received last week from the Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs) is not the same as the number of positive tests in that week. The number of positive tests during the week could still change in response to delayed reports. These are newly reported infections that originate from test lanes, but also from hospitals and other sources. The number of infections in a week is expected to be higher than the number of positive tests, because it is likely that not everyone who is infected will get tested.

Not everyone who tests positive for COVID-19 is referred to as a patient. That term is used for people who are so ill that they are being monitored by a doctor, or for people who became so ill that they died. Not everyone who tests positive for COVID-19 becomes that ill. Many people only develop mild symptoms, or do not notice any symptoms at all. In the past, people who tested positive for COVID-19 were sometimes referred to as patients. This term has now been updated in our communications.

Lareb: biweekly report 

In its biweekly report, Pharmacovigilance Centre Lareb stated that the centre had received and reviewed a total of 10,887 reports so far involving 57,391 possible side-effects. Nearly 1.9 million vaccinations have been given by now. Most of the reported symptoms are in line with side-effects that were already known. Since the start of the vaccination campaign, Lareb has received a total of 138 reports regarding deaths shortly after receiving the COVID-19 vaccinations. The vast majority involved elderly people who died between 1 and 33 days after the vaccination. Lareb announced in a news item that they were all in vulnerable health due to various serious underlying diseases and/or advanced age. RIVM is monitoring the developments closely.

CBS: Decrease in mortality among people aged 80 years and up

Based on the national provisional counts of the number of deaths per week, Statistics Netherlands (CBS) estimates that more than 3,200 people died in week 8 (22 to 28 February). This is fewer deaths than expected for this period, and nearly 300 fewer deaths than in the week before (3,491). A significant decrease was seen in mortality among people aged 80 years and up and people receiving care under the Long-Term Care Act (WLZ). 

RIVM also keeps track of mortality figures on a weekly basis, and has been tracking these figures since 2009 in cooperation with Statistics Netherlands. RIVM reports that mortality was elevated in the week of 18 to 24 February in all combined regions, with the exception of the Zeeland/Noord Brabant/Limburg region. A total of 3,348 deaths were reported in that week (354 more than the average expected mortality). We would normally expect to see between 2,830 and 3,157 deaths at this time of year. From 18 to 24 February, the reported mortality due to laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 was 322 deaths.

The method used by RIVM to estimate mortality is slightly different than the method used by Statistics Netherlands. Statistics Netherlands estimates excess mortality based on the average mortality per week in recent years, including increased mortality during unusual circumstances, such as a wave of seasonal influenza, or a heat wave. RIVM does not include the peaks during unusual circumstances in its calculations of average weekly mortality. The excess mortality estimates provided by Statistics Netherlands and RIVM complement each other.

Weekly update on COVID-19 vaccination: 21 to 28 February 2021

By Sunday 28 February, it is estimated that more than 1,000,000 people in the Netherlands had received at least one COVID-19 vaccination.

Vaccination started last week for mental health clients in inpatient or residential care at four large institutions and the mental healthcare workers employed there; they are being vaccinated by the institution’s own medical department. District nurses also started receiving their vaccinations last week.

The number of newly reported infections that RIVM received last week from the Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs) is not the same as the number of positive tests in that week. The number of positive tests during the week could still change in response to delayed reports. These are newly reported infections that originate from test lanes, but also from hospitals and other sources. The number of infections in a week is expected to be higher than the number of positive tests, because it is likely that not everyone who is infected will get tested.

Not everyone who tests positive for COVID-19 is referred to as a patient. That term is used for people who are so ill that they need to be hospitalised, or for people who became so ill that they died. Not everyone who tests positive for COVID-19 becomes so ill that they have to be hospitalised. Many people only develop mild symptoms, or do not notice any symptoms at all.

In the past, we have referred to people who tested positive for COVID-19 as patients. This term has now been updated in our communications.

RIVM joins European project on response to pandemics

Starting in February 2021, RIVM and Radboud University Medical Centre will be collaborating on the PANDEM-2 project. This project aims to increase and strengthen preparedness for and response to future pandemics. In that context, sharing information and collaborating are very important in order to protect the health and safety of people across the European Union. The PANDEM-2 project is funded by the European Union through Horizon 2020. The team from the Netherlands includes experts from Radboudumc and RIVM.

Study on Q fever and COVID-19

On Thursday 14 January 2021, RIVM National Institute for Public Health and the Environment   launched a study on Q fever and COVID-19 in the province of Noord-Brabant. Working with the Hart voor Brabant Municipal Public Health Service (GGD) and the Jeroen Bosch Hospital, among other parties, RIVM is researching whether people who had Q fever in 2007–2009 also have a higher risk of contracting COVID-19. Targeted invitations will be sent to potential participants for this study.
