With Christmas rapidly approaching it almost seems traditional that our government starts to contemplate a full lockdown. That is at least the advice that seems to be given by the Dutch Outbreak Management Team.
It is quite sure now that every measure leaks before the press conference announcing it is held, and this seems no exception. Primary schools close a week early and non-essential stores will close. All to halt the omicron variant of Covid-19 in its tracks.
I am no virologist, so nothing from me about the usefulness (or lack thereof) of the measures that are taken. Only a lament for my kids who now will miss their school Christmas dinner. I hope this will be over soon.
