Sanctions have been re-imposed on bars, clubs & restaurants.
The Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has apologised for easing Covid restrictions too soon.
His Government re-imposed restrictions on bars, restaurant and clubs last Friday, following a wave of infections in younger adults.
Mr. Rutte said the decision to fully re-open nightclubs and hospitality two weeks ago was 'poor judgement,' which he regrets.
Case numbers in the Netherlands have increased from about 600 a day, to over 9,000 a day in that time.
The Netherlands was too quick to ease restrictions in June, caretaker PM Mark Rutte has acknowledged.— POLITICOEurope (@POLITICOEurope) July 12, 2021
Last week, the country reported its highest number of new coronavirus infection cases since December. https://t.co/TsRGj9qWwu
