Relatively many people have contracted coronavirus at school or at work. These have become important ‘places of infection’, according to weekly figures from the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment on the state of the coronavirus outbreak.
The source of infection is not known to all people who have tested positive for the coronavirus. For example, there are people who do not know where and how they contracted the virus. “Infection mode” has been identified in three out of ten people who tested positive last week.
More than half of the new cases with known source were infected at home, by a co-worker or family member. Visiting each other resulted in 14 percent of cases.
In about 14 percent of people, the infection can be traced back to a school or childcare. This is similar to last week. Of all the people who tested positive since the beginning of August, the school or nursery school was the source in 10 percent of cases.
After education, the work situation follows: about 8 percent of the people there became infected. This percentage is similar to last week, but higher than the level since early August. Parties such as birthdays, drinks and weddings have caused more corona infection than previous weeks.
