Even now that vaccination has begun, the coronavirus blown over from China continues to cause worldwide disruption. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 2 million people have died of the virus worldwide. In the Netherlands, about 13,000 people have succumbed to the virus. More than 100 million coronavirus infections have been detected worldwide. Follow the latest coronan news in this live blog.
The European Commission is proposing on Monday to establish ‘dark red zones’ in the EU, which can also cross borders with neighbouring countries, where unnecessary movements are restricted. These are areas where the coronavirus is spreading very hard, says President Ursula von der Leyen. Persons wishing to travel from these areas should be tested for a COVID-19 infection prior to departure and quarantine upon arrival in a different coloured zone.
Mr von der Leyen insisted that internal borders should remain open so as not to disturb the internal market. But with the rapid spread of new variants should be mapped where additional measures are necessary, she said.
According to EU President Charles Michel, EU leaders agree on the need to vaccinate more quickly. In addition, they rely on the pharmaceuticals to honour their agreements on deliveries. According to the European Commission, manufacturer Pfizer has assured that deliveries of the vaccines will be back up next week and will increase thereafter. According to Von der Leyen, there is broad support for her call for 70% of all adults to be vaccinated in the summer.
Leaders also committed to further research into the genetic material of the virus found in a positive test. In this way, new variants can be detected more quickly.
