Expats' response to coronavirus in the Netherlands

A survey conducted by The Hague International Centre has shown that most internationals in The Hague area feel sufficiently informed about coronavirus measures in the Netherlands, with an average satisfaction rating of 7,4 out of 10.

Results also revealed that internationals were most impacted by and concerned about travel restrictions and their ability to return home to care for friends and family. However, in comparison to the results from a nation-wide survey, internationals based in The Hague were less worried about job security than their Dutch counterparts.

International coronavirus figures

The global number of deaths due to the coronavirus has risen above half a million, according to researchers at John Hopkins University. The university in Maryland has been counting the deaths since the outbreak of the virus.

The USA has the highest death rate, with around 125.000 deaths in total. Brazil follows with 57.000, and the United Kingdom with 43.000.

The number of recorded coronavirus cases around the world has also surpassed 10 million. The Netherlands surpassed the milestone of 50.000 recorded cases this weekend. 

Experts believe the real number of total deaths and total cases could be significantly higher, as not all countries are testing for the virus.
