11.50 – Safety regions are still working on mouth masks advice
The four safety regions, including Brabant-Zuidoost, which give the urgent advice to wear a face mask in all publicly accessible indoor areas are currently still working on the precise details. This is done together in order to make it as unambiguous as possible, a spokeswoman for the Amsterdam-Amstelland Safety Region said.

Mayor Femke Halsema of Amsterdam announced on Monday evening that she, together with the regions of Rotterdam-Rijnmond, Haaglanden and Brabant-Southeast, is going one step further than the government’s advice to wear face masks in shops in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and The Hague. Halsema wants wearing it to become a habit in all public spaces, such as restaurants, museums, libraries and government buildings.

“We request institutions, the hotel and catering industry and retailers to include a duty to wear in their door policy,” said the mayor. In addition, the safety regions also recommend wearing a mouth mask in all contact professions.

11.44 – Curfew not ruled out
The government does not rule out the setting of an evening and night clock if the increasing number of corona infections is not reduced enough with the new measures. Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health) writes this to the Lower House. The measures that Prime Minister Mark Rutte and De Jonge announced on Monday largely correspond with the advice of the Outbreak Management Team (OMT).

However, the experts from that group also recommended a number of measures, which are not yet being implemented. An evening and night clock is one of them. Another is closing the shower and changing facilities at sports facilities.

11.22 – Carnival activities in Tilburg and Oss canceled
Carnival Foundation Tilburg does not organize any activities this carnival season. This means, among other things, that the parade and Kruikenstad in Koor will not take place. Oss also puts an end to many activities. The 11-11 ball is canceled there and no princes are chosen. Unlike Kruikenstad, the Carnival Celebration Foundation Oss has not yet put a stop to the activities during carnival. A decision on this will be taken in the coming months.

10.43 – Supermarkets also do not refuse customers without a mask
The Dutch supermarkets will allow customers who do not wear a mouth mask to enter in the near future. Chains such as Jumbo and Albert Heijn support the advice of the cabinet and a number of mayors to wear a face mask in the store in certain areas, but leave the choice to customers whether they actually do this.

10.05 – HEMA does not refuse customers without a mask
HEMA will not refuse customers who do not wear a mouth mask. According to the retailer, it is not up to retailers to enforce such measures. In line with government policy in the major cities, HEMA will recommend that customers only enter shops with a face mask. In those branches it is mandatory for HEMA staff to wear a mask.

10.02 – Theaters Tilburg must intervene
Theaters Tilburg is forced to intervene due to the ongoing corona crisis. The Lucebert restaurant will probably close on January 1, 2021. According to director Rob van Steen, this is the only way to prevent further damage to the financial position of the theater. The intended decision affects nineteen employees. It is in addition to the cutbacks not to renew temporary contracts of dozens of on-call employees this autumn.

09.24 – Patients less ill
Patients infected with the coronavirus appear to have a less severe disease course than patients on the first wave. The Dutch Internists Association (NIV) reports this on the basis of an inventory of 180 patients, spread over nine hospitals.

“Patients admitted to the hospital’s ward seem to be getting less ill at the moment, the length of stay has decreased by a third, and the percentage of patients who still need to be transferred to the ICU appears to have more than halved,” the organization said. The NIV does emphasize that in individual cases the consequences of corona can be undiminished for patients.

08.21 – Sufficient measures in the workplace?
Special walking routes, fewer people on the work floor, enough distance between the desks: according to workers, it is by no means always a reality. One in five people in paid employment believes that insufficient measures have been taken at their workplace to keep a distance of five feet. This is evident from a survey among 3,486 people from LocalFocus, conducted in collaboration with Kieskompas.

06.10 – Doubts about corona measures
Doctor-microbiologist Jan Kluytmans of the Amphia Hospital in Breda has his doubts whether the announced corona measures by the cabinet will be sufficient to counter the increasing number of infections.

According to him, it is mainly a matter of behavior in people. “It is important that we take measures now,” says Kluytmans in the talk show Op1. “I have some reservations about whether it will be enough”, said Kluytmans, who advises the cabinet as a member of the Outbreak Management Team (OMT).

06.00 – Corona enforcement is at the expense of other police work
Enforcing the new corona measures will be at the expense of other police work. Jan Struijs, chairman of the Dutch Police Union, warns against this in response to the decision of the cabinet and the Security Council to take stricter corona measures.

“Inevitably,” says Struijs about this in De Telegraaf. “We will have to leave other tasks for longer, we also hope that this is properly explained to the public. Because this is now top priority, we understand that of course.” People will probably have to be more patient before they can report the crime.

“That is not pleasant for civilians. Imagine that you are burgled and you can only go to work after six weeks … But there is no other option. The police are already on their gums,” said Struijs.

03.00 – Infections increase nationwide
About 19,000 corona infections have probably been diagnosed in the past week. The exact figure will be published on Tuesday afternoon in the weekly update of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). In any case, the number will rise sharply, as on Tuesday the institute reported that it had received 13,741 reports of positive tests in the seven days before. The week before, the number of infections rose by 8,265.

00.00 – Number of deaths passes million
The number of people who have died worldwide as a result of the coronavirus has passed the one million mark. This is according to a census from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. The virus emerged in China at the end of last year and then spread around the world.

At the end of June, half a million people had died from Covid-19 and by mid-August, three-quarters of a million. The most victims (nearly 205,000) were in the United States, followed by Brazil (almost 142,000), India (over 95,000) and Mexico (over 76,000). In fifth and sixth place are the United Kingdom, with more than 42,000 deaths, and Italy (almost 36,000). In the Netherlands, according to figures from the university, 6415 people have died of the virus.
