Netherlands ready for new partial coronavirus lockdown

As the government works to control the spread of coronavirus illnesses, the Netherlands is about to go into a fresh partial lockdown.

At 7:00 p.m., Prime Minister Mark Rutte was set to speak to the public on the fresh measures from his official residence (1800 GMT).

According to Dutch media, quoting government sources, a three-week partial closure is expected to begin on Saturday, with restaurants and most retailers required to shutter early at 7 p.m.

Over the duration of Friday, Rutte’s caretaker administration was completing the proposal.

One element that is still being considered is whether to enact a law that restricts admission to sports and cultural facilities, as well as restaurants, to individuals who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or who have recovered from it.

Furthermore, residents would only have a maximum of four guests at any given time, according to sources, and athletic activities will no longer be staged in front of an audience.

On Thursday, the number of daily new coronavirus infections reached an all-time high of over 16,000, an all-time high.

The situation is so perilous, especially in intensive care units, that hospitals are already warning of a care crisis. (dpa/NAN)
