Today it was also announced that all residents of the Lansingerland municipality, which includes Bergschenhoek, will receive a call to be tested. For example, further research is being conducted into the British variant of the virus. The appeal applies to all residents of two years and older, even if they have no corona-related complaints.
The rest of the corona measures are, according to insiders, very likely to be extended until February 9. Experts from the Outbreak Management Team would have strongly advised the government to do so because the number of infections is still very high. Last week, an average of 7,700 people a day were tested positive.
Tomorrow evening there will be a new press conference by Rutte and Minister Hugo de Jonge.
