The whole of Gelderland is now a worrying corona area, peak in Heumen


The national government, RIVM, the GGDs and security regions examine every week whether the situation regarding the corona virus is developing positively or negatively. The Minister of Health then determines the risk level at which a region is: vigilant, worrisome or serious. Only Drenthe, Zeeland and Limburg still belong to the lowest risk group, while the situation around Rotterdam, The Hague and Amsterdam is considered serious.

When the situation in Gelderland-Zuid was labeled as worrying on September 27, additional measures were announced. A few days later, the cabinet introduced stricter rules across the country.

Gelderland-Midden takes the cake

The corona virus is advancing in our region. In the past week, most new infections in our province were found in Central Gelderland: 865. In Southern Gelderland, 796 were positive tests and 735 in North and East Gelderland.

Last day, 552 infections were added throughout Gelderland, against 397 the day before. Here too, Gelderland-Midden took the cake with 240 positive people tested. In North and East Gelderland there were 171 new infections and in Gelderland-South there were 141.

The increase in Gelderland is striking when you look at the national contamination figures. These remained stable at over 4,500.

Peak in Heumen

It is also striking that there are relatively many infections in the municipality of Heumen. On Monday, the municipality even scored by far the highest in the whole of the Netherlands, with 103 positive tests per 100,000 inhabitants. In Heumen, 17 people were tested positive in one day.

On Tuesday, it is still 54 positive tests per 100,000 inhabitants, but that is still the highest number in our province and just as many as in Amsterdam. The GGD Gelderland-Zuid has no direct explanation for this. According to a spokesperson, it is not about a fireplace in, for example, a care institution or at a school.

‘No unauthorized parties’

The municipality itself suspects that it is because many residents of Malden, by far the largest center of Heumen, work in Nijmegen. “You can almost see Malden as a suburb or suburb of Nijmegen and is close to the university, university of applied sciences and the Radboudumc. It is possible that the infections were contracted there,” says a spokesman.

According to him, the corona measures are well observed in Heumen. “No irregularities were discovered during checks at sports clubs, catering establishments and other organizations. For example, no illegal parties were found”, said the spokesman.
