Dutch Health Minister Ernst Kippers has announced that his country will lift most of the Corona restrictions from February 25, so that life can return to normal, in light of the decline in the number of injuries and cases requiring hospitalization.
And the Minister of Health, at a press conference, said, “We will reopen the country.. We will return to the closing dates followed before Corona and you will no longer have to take into account 1.5 meters of distance in between. One person and another,” he added, “will now have to wear a mask on public transport.” Only at the airport. Distancing and wearing a mask still makes sense, but is not mandatory.”
He stressed that the epidemic is “not over” and that the most vulnerable still need to be vigilant.
With this decision, bars, restaurants and nightclubs will return to their old (pre-epidemic) working hours, and compulsory social distancing and wearing masks will be removed in most places.
The Dutch government introduced measures that were among the most drastic in Europe in December after the number of infections with the “Omicron” mutant increased, but gradually began to remove them.
The Minister for Health took office under Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s new government in January and quickly confirmed that he wanted to get life back to normal.
The Netherlands witnessed two waves of riots in 2021 against the backdrop of Covid restrictions. In November, police shot and injured several protesters in Rotterdam.
