In recent weeks, the corona virus has mainly affected the Randstad and the west of Noord-Brabant, but an outbreak has also developed far beyond. In Dokkum, North Frisian, at least fourteen people have been infected by one visitor to a home party.
According to the Frisian GGD, the virus has mainly spread “on a terrace in the open air”. Most infected people are young people who knew each other. They have been quarantined to prevent them from spreading the virus further. The GGD in Friesland thinks that most of those involved “have now been identified and tested”.

According to the regional health service, the Dokkumer outbreak shows that it is important to keep enough distance from each other in the open air as well.
