The national team coach Jeroen Otter today said there has been not a single sign of recovery and Van Ruijven is very much fighting for her life. She is in an artificial coma and that's not expected to change (at least in a positive way) any time soon. 

 

Apparently she got struck by some sort of auto-immune disorder, leading to severe complications including internal bleedings. A second surgery has already been done but didn't lead to any positive change. 

 

It's pretty clear: this is very much going in the wrong direction.
