Not only adults, but also children can take a corona test. At many test sites there is extra attention for children and sometimes there is even a special children’s test street. Children get extra explanation about the test and there is more time to take the test
This is the case, for example, in Urmond in the province of Limburg. Reporter Bart went to see how things are going there
The RIVM announced today that the number of infections in the Netherlands is not going well. This week there were 5427 more infections. That is more than 1800 more than last week. Also, many more people have had themselves tested
The problem is that the complaints of corona are very similar to those of a common flu or cold. For example, coughing, sore throat or a runny nose. Now that autumn is coming, many more people suffer from it. And so more people are getting themselves tested as well.
As a result, it is getting busier and busier at the test sites. Nevertheless, the RIVM says that it is important to take a test if you have complaints. This way you can be sure that you have the virus and can infect others
