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.
