Dataset: COVID-19 case counts in The Netherlands
CoronaWatchNL collects COVID-19 disease count cases in The Netherlands. Numbers are collected from the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) website on a daily basis. This project standardizes, and publishes data and makes it Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR). We aim to collect a complete time series and prepare a dataset for reproducible analysis and academic use.
CoronalWatchNL verzamelt ziektecijfers over COVID-19 in Nederland. Dagelijks worden de cijfers verzameld van de website van het RIVM. Dit project standaardiseert en publiceert de gegevens en maakt ze vindbaar, toegankelijk, interoperabel en herbruikbaar (FAIR). We streven ernaar om een dataset beschikbaar te stellen voor reproduceerbare analyses en wetenschappelijk gebruik.
The following datasets are available for reuse.
|COVID-19 case counts in NL (NEW)||RIVM||Date, Type (Total, hopitalized and deceased patients), Count|
|COVID-19 case counts in NL per province||RIVM||Date, Province, COVID-19 case counts|
|COVID-19 hospitalizations in NL per municipality||RIVM||Date, Number of COVID-19 hospitalized patients in NL, Municipality of residence, Municipality code (2019), Province|
|COVID-19 case counts in NL per age||RIVM||Date, Age group, Type, Number of positive COVID-19 disease cases in NL|
|COVID-19 case counts in NL per gender||RIVM||Date, Gender group, Type, Number of positive COVID-19 disease cases in NL|
|COVID-19 per municipality (PDF maps)||RIVM||Date, Type, Number of positive COVID-19 disease cases, hospitalizations and fatalities per 100.000 people, Municipality, Province|
|RIVM press releases||RIVM||Date and Time, Content of press release|
|COVID-19 intensive care patient counts in NL (EXPERIMENTAL)||Stichting NICE||Date, New intake of positive IC patients, Total of positive patients currently in IC, Total of positive patients ever in IC, Total of ICUs with currently at least one positive patient, Total of fatal IC cases, Total of survived IC cases|
The following datasets are awaiting deprecation. They are replaced by new datasets.
|COVID-19 disease case counts in NL||RIVM||Date, Number of positive COVID-19 disease cases in NL||rivm_NL_covid19_national.csv||COVID-19 case counts in NL|
|COVID-19 fatalities in NL||RIVM||Date, Number of COVID-19 fatalities in NL||rivm_NL_covid19_national.csv||COVID-19 case counts in NL|
|COVID-19 hospitalizations in NL||RIVM||Date, Number of COVID-19 hospitalized patients in NL||rivm_NL_covid19_national.csv||COVID-19 case counts in NL|
The following datasets are no longer appended with new data (because RIVM is no longer providing the data).
|COVID-19 disease case counts in NL||[long format] [wide format]||RIVM||Date, Number of positive COVID-19 disease cases in NL, Municipality of residence, Municipality code (2019), Province||2020-03-30|
CoronaWatchNL collects copies of the raw data such that data collection is verifiable. Copies of the collected data can be found in the folder raw_data/. The data isn't standardised.
Data collection sources
The following sources are used for data collection.
|https://www.rivm.nl/nieuws/actuele-informatie-over-coronavirus||RIVM||Positively tested patients, Fatalities (total), Hospitalized (total)|
|https://www.rivm.nl/coronavirus-kaart-van-nederland-per-gemeente||RIVM||Positive tests per municipality|
|https://www.stichting-nice.nl/||Stichting NICE||Postively tested patients admitted to IC, Number of ICUs with positively tested patient(s), Number of fatal IC cases, Number of survived IC cases|
Since 3 March 2020, RIVM reports the number of diagnoses with the coronavirus and their municipality of residence on a daily base. The data contains the total number of positively tested patients. It is not a dataset with the current number of sick people in the Netherlands. The RIVM does not currently provide data on people who have been cured.
The following graphs show the development of Coronavirus on a daily basis. The underlying data can be found in the data folder. The graphs are updated on an hourly basis and were generated automatically. Please validate the numbers in the graphs before publishing. See the license section for information about sharing the graphs.
