AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Netherlands registered 69 new coronavirus cases on Monday, and no deaths from the disease, the country’s health authorities said in their daily update.
It was the first 24-hour period with no new deaths registered by the National Institute of Health (RIVM) since March 9.
Dutch cases have declined gradually since reaching a peak at the start of April. Lockdown measures have been gradually phased out, though social distancing rules remain in place.
