More than a hundred people have been diagnosed with the Omicron variant in the Netherlands, but the actual number of cases is likely higher. The virus version is spreading quickly. This could lead to a new wave of infections. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) assumes that omicron will be the most common variant shortly after the turn of the year. It’s not clear if the version is even more disgusting, but it’s possible a new wave of hospital admissions is on the way too.
The cabinet will review the emergency advice on Saturday. That is a day earlier than planned. There will be a press conference early next week. The House is set to return from hiatus next week, expected to discuss additional measures on Wednesday.
