Cabinet takes extra corona measures, press conference tomorrow afternoon

The contamination figures in the country remain very worrying, De Jonge writes, based on statements by the Outbreak Management Team.

“The new virus variants may make a greater contribution to this in the coming weeks. The cabinet therefore considers it necessary to take additional measures as soon as possible.”


It is not yet known what those extra corona measures are. The cabinet would strongly consider introducing a curfew. There must be a parliamentary majority for that, but that is not self-evident yet. For example, coalition party D66 would be against, just like opposition parties PVV, FvD, DENK and GroenLinks.

According to insiders, other measures are also on the table, such as limiting air traffic between the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, or further limiting home visits. According to sources, the measures could take effect this week, if the cabinet and parliament reach an agreement.

The press conference will take place around 1 pm and can be followed on this site.
