Belgium is not the only country where the corona figures are on a steep climb. Anything but even. Figures are also rising (sharply) in the countries around us and stricter measures are being taken. What is striking: in more and more countries, no national stricter measures are announced, but the country is divided into “risk zones”. How about now? And what about our country?
Yesterday, 1,974 new (established) corona infections were added in the Netherlands, the day before 1,753, the day before 1,542. The Dutch figures show that the number of infections has been climbing strongly since the beginning of September, just like in our country. The number of deaths remains relatively low for the time being, as were 2 deaths from the corona virus reported yesterday.
This has not gone unnoticed by our northern neighbors. “The virus is making a comeback,” said Prime Minister Mark Rutte at a press conference yesterday. Along with the signal to tighten. No entanglement for the entire country, but regional measures for 6 regions in the west of the country that are currently the most worrying.
