Watch coffee grounds
The umbrella organization GGD GHOR Nederland has no explanation for the decline. “That is looking at coffee grounds. We saw the number of people tested increase last month, to our satisfaction. But now the demand is decreasing again, and that is not the intention. If people have doubts about accessibility or availability, we are happy to take those doubts But our call is: keep coming, keep coming, keep coming, “said a spokeswoman.
GGD GHOR The Netherlands expects the decline to continue in the coming week.
