Some Dutchies are intentionally infecting themselves with COVID-19

Yep, you read that right. Some Nederlanders are getting COVID-19 on purpose by attending “contamination parties” which uh…we don’t really get. ๐Ÿ˜

According to the NOS, certain groups of people are intentionally getting themselves sick to receive a recovery certificate which will allow them entry into public venues for a year.

Meaning that some people would much rather go to the trouble of actually getting COVID-19 than getting the free vaccine. ๐Ÿคฆ

Contamination parties

“Contamination parties” were being hosted on websites like, where people could meet each other to get infected with the virus.

The site was taken down by the host company (thank God) and โ€” in a power-move by the Dutch government โ€” if you type in the link you get re-directed to the Dutch government’s page for making a vaccination appointment.

However, this isn’t the only tactic people are resorting to. Others will simply meet up with someone they know who has the virus in order to kiss them or drink out of their glass โ€” ew! ๐Ÿคข

According to Bas van den Putte, Professor of Health Communication at the University of Amsterdam, people aren’t always going to agree with what the government wants and will look for “shortcuts.”

“A slap in the face”

“It is a slap in the face for everyone who has been committed to fighting the pandemic for more than a year and a half,” said Inspector General Marina Eckenhausen of the Health and Youth Inspectorate.

Health Minister Hugo de Jonge also disapproves of the intentional infections and says that the Inspectorate is considering what actions to take against this.

“We will use every opportunity and legal means to do something about this,” said de Jonge.

  1. So selfish to do such a thing. Shows how low they will go to get their way. So if some of them die, they did this delibertly (indirectly) themselves. Unbelieveable.
    I do hope they get caught for this. But I rekon its a difficult thing to prove.
    Pity they mostly all read false news. Strange how they run to doctors if they are sick. But the same doctors give vaccines. Its A contradiction. And shows how their brains work.
    Plus they are not afraid to take other pills for other sickness. Which most likely have more side effects than the Vaccine. Also of course, given to them from the same doctors that give the vaccine.
    If they can’t trust anyone, what kind of a life do they live, is my big question mark.
    Others are also just as bad, to buy false Corona QR Codes. I hear you can buy one in Holland for 100 euro. So this situation is defnitely very difficult to controle. I hope they can sleep with their consence if they do kill anyone, because of their false QR codes.
    I would not like to have that on my consence.

  2. As a Dutch person, I am deeply shocked and embarrassed about this utterly painful ignorance. Apparently something went wrong with evolution with these people, who decided to become serious contenders for the Darwin award. I used to be proud of my country, its achievements and how many celebrated scientists it has produced. But this… this saddens and angers me. There is no excuse for willful ignorance and endangering others.

  3. It is all about dodging the lab-designed Wuhan-type spike protein, which is still being transcribed from synthetical mRNA in vaccines, while latest dominant sars-cov-2 variants are much less virulent, some even completely symptomless, while inifection provides a far broader immunity (to some 50 proteins, but mainly N, M, E and S) than just the narrow immune response to a former, and more lethal, Wuhan-type spike protein from vaccines. Hence infection is avoiding unwanted side effects from unknown vaccine mechanisms, while getting superior immunity leading to herd immunity, which gets stored in memory B-cells, not needing 7-monthly booster injections. After all we already saw robust immune response to Sars-CoV-2, from people that got infected during the Sars epidemic in 2003, consequently storing this type of coronavirus infection probably for life.
