Just as we’re getting used to life slowly coming back to normal, we may need to prepare to take a step backward. News has broken that the Dutch cabinet has requested urgent advice from the Outbreak Management Team (OMT) about whether or not to reintroduce coronavirus restrictions.
“You see that it’s increasing rapidly,” Health Minister Hugo de Jonge tells the NOS. We can’t help but wonder what role the massive reopening of nightlife or cases of incorrect access to test results had to play in this. 🤔
De Jonge assures that the cabinet’s goal of protecting healthcare is not in danger. “About three quarters of the infections are among young people and they are less likely to end up in hospital,” he says.
However, he has requested advice from the Outbreak Management Team to see “whether we really should be concerned.”
