One of those recordings took place in Brabant, one in Friesland and four in South Holland.

Fewer people visit the cinema due to the corona crisis, and the Dutch film industry believes this should change. With the campaign, filmmakers want to lure the audience back to the halls. In the commercials, on TV and online, Jan Kooijman, Robert de Hoog, Nasrdin Dchar and Thekla Reuten show why they think it is so much fun to watch a movie in the cinema.

At the moment, fifteen people are admitted to hospitals in Brabant who have been diagnosed with a corona infection. Five of them are in intensive care. The ROAZ announced this on Monday afternoon.

The Royal Netherlands Marechaussee has recently become busier with passengers who cause nuisance. For example, travelers who do not want to wear a face mask cause ‘hassle’ and that can lead to high fines, the Marechaussee reports.

The number of people who had themselves tested for the coronavirus dropped last week. Between Monday, July 27 and Sunday, August 2, nearly 102,000 people went to a GGD test site for a check-up. That is nine percent less than the week before. The umbrella organization GGD GHOR Nederland has no explanation for the decline.

The number of people who registered for part-time PABO training this year has risen by more than 21 percent compared to last year. There has been an upward trend for years, but this increase is very strong, says a spokeswoman for the Association of Universities of Applied Sciences. She suspects that the increase is related to the uncertainties caused by the corona crisis. These are still pre-registrations, so it may be that people still drop out.

Activity in the Dutch industry shrank again last month, but the decline was again less marked than a month earlier. This is reported by the Dutch Association of Purchasing Managers (Nevi). According to ABN AMRO economist Albert Jan Swart, it therefore seems that the bottom has almost been reached for Dutch industry. He does notice that the industry is in a lower gear. For example, the number of jobs declined rapidly.

In the past two weeks, nineteen passengers who had been infected with the corona virus arrived at Eindhoven Airport. This brings the total since the beginning of June to 26. The infected passengers were spread over 21 flights, reports the GGD Brabant-Zuidoost on Monday.

Volunteer aid to those in need has failed during the lockdown despite the influx of many new people. The corona help and volunteer platform NL concludes this on the basis of research by the Rotterdam School of Management. According to that study, a third of the people who have been asked for assistance have experienced a shortage of aid.

Heineken has seen a slight recovery since the bottom of the corona crisis in April. However, the brewer still calls the situation surrounding the corona virus ‘mobile and uncertain’. Heineken confirmed the preliminary figures that the company released for the first half of last month. The company suffered a loss, mainly because the catering industry was affected in many important markets.

PostNL achieved higher sales and profit in the second quarter, helped by the corona crisis. Because of the virus outbreak and the measures to prevent it from spreading, people more often ordered online and the postal and parcel company was busier delivering parcels at home.

The number of new coronavirus infections in Belgium continues to increase. From July 24 to 30, this involved an average of 490 cases per day, an increase of 68 percent compared to a week earlier. This is evident on Sunday from the data from health institute Sciensano.

The number of hospital admissions has also increased significantly. In the past week, an average of 24 people per day with COVID-19 were hospitalized. That is an increase of 60 percent within a week.

Youth doctors are concerned about the well-being of teenagers. Due to the corona crisis, the investigation of 14- to 16-year-olds in consultation centers in most locations has come to a complete standstill. “We do not now see whether they are depressed, while this entire corona time has an impact on this group,” said one person in the AD.

Youth doctors preventively monitor the development of children, give the vaccinations, check hearing and sight and monitor their well-being. Checks of schoolchildren and interim agreements in particular were canceled in various regions. The study of 14 to 16-year-olds has even come to a complete standstill in most locations. The Netherlands Center for Youth Health Care (NCJ) calls the dropout ‘risky’.
