Netherlands sees a spike in COVID-19 cases


The Netherlands now has one of the worst coronavirus infection rates in Europe, as case numbers and hospital admissions balloon.
After the first wave, authorities implemented a test and trace policy in an effort to contain new infections but due to recent explosive numbers contact tracing of infected people has become impossible.
Despite the rapidly rising numbers the government does not want to impose stricter measures as of yet but if infection rates continue to go up new measures might be announced soon.
