Red Cross to government: don’t forget the most vulnerable
During the second corona wave, the government must not lose sight of the most vulnerable people in providing aid and developing support measures. The Red Cross is making that call. ‘Not everyone who loses their job or is temporarily unable to work is now entitled to government support. Some of them, such as seasonal workers and cleaners who do informal work, quickly find themselves in serious circumstances without an income. ‘
For example, there are more and more people who do not have enough to eat and in some cases people have lost their home or shelter due to the crisis. They also run a higher risk of becoming victims of human trafficking or exploitation, according to the Red Cross on Wednesday.
Chamber debates with Rutte and De Jonge about new corona rules
On Wednesday, the cabinet will again debate with the House of Representatives about the developments surrounding the corona virus. This time the new measures announced last Monday are central. Prime Minister Mark Rutte and ‘corona minister’ Hugo de Jonge are facing a critical Chamber, which finds the tightened corona measures often too late or insufficient.
SP party chairman Lilian Marijnissen is ‘very concerned’ about the effectiveness of the measures. She also wonders whether it is not better to introduce guidelines, such as the mouth masks advice, nationally instead of regionally. The PvdA and GroenLinks agree with this. Rob Jetten, leader of coalition party D66, also finds the difference in measures difficult to understand, he told Nieuwsuur on Tuesday.
‘Austerity package must be reversed’
The cabinet must reverse the austerity measures in the third aid package, which starts on Thursday. Trade unions FNV and CNV make this appeal in De Telegraaf. Now that the corona measures have been tightened, it is necessary, according to the unions, to expand support for entrepreneurs to prevent a battlefield of reorganisations and bankruptcies. In the reduced third support package, among other things, wage compensation for companies is reduced.
VO Council: 100,000 students at home due to coronavirus
Due to the increasing number of corona cases in schools, more and more children are sitting at home. This concerns ten percent of secondary school students, about 100,000 children, reports De Telegraaf based on the VO Council. According to the newspaper, this brings the scenario of last spring, in which all students receive home schooling, closer and closer.
Corona cases have now been diagnosed at approximately 400 schools. In addition, teachers are concerned about the fact that sniffling students up to the age of thirteen may just appear in class again, according to De Telegraaf.
Potential Moderna vaccine appears to be effective in the elderly and safe
The results of a first safety trial with a potential corona vaccine from the American pharmaceutical company Moderna look promising. The older subjects who received the vaccine produced about as many antibodies as young adults. According to researchers, the side effects are comparable to those of a flu shot.
The study has been published in the leading New England Journal of Medicine. The fact that the potential vaccine appears to have positive effects for the elderly, a particularly vulnerable group, is an important finding, according to one of the researchers, because the immune systems of seniors are often weakened.
Possible privacy error CoronaMelder not in national app
A possible privacy flaw in the corona app CoronaMelder, which is now being regionally tested, will not be in the national version when it is launched. That says the Ministry of Health, in response to reports by the Volkskrant. According to that newspaper, GGD employees could see whether infected people were using the corona app. This could potentially put them under pressure.
Soldier van Oranje is standing still due to corona infections
The musical Soldier of Orange has come to a halt again, this time due to corona infections within the cast. This confirms a spokesperson for the musical in response to reports from Shownieuws. At the beginning of September, the first performances were played again in the TheaterHangaar in Katwijk after a six-month corona stop.
About half of the cast, about fifteen people, have tested positive for the corona virus. That is why the musical has been canceled until October 4 in any case. The musical was also stopped at the beginning of March, then because of the stricter corona measures. When the musical was restarted in early September, producer Fred Boot said he was happy that the team could get back to work, even though with 300 instead of 1100 people in the room it is far from profitable.
Thirty people are allowed to attend marriage
Thirty people may still be present at a wedding ceremony. Previously there were four more. This was decided on Tuesday after consultation between the Ministry of Health and safety regions. The new measure applies throughout the country. It is not yet known whether the relaxation also applies to wedding parties. The ministry will provide further details on this on Wednesday, says a spokesman.
There was immediately a lot of confusion about the measure. For example, the measure did not apply to wedding services in churches, because there is no group limit in places of worship. The maximum group size of four did apply at the civil registry office. Many couples canceled their wedding.
