Covid-19: Europe imposes new restrictions as cases reach record high

‘The facts don’t lie, we have to be stricter for ourselves’: The Netherlands goes into partial lockdown

 

European governments are adding new restrictions and calling on citizens to make sacrifices in a bid to contain a record increase in coronavirus cases, with the Czech Republic closing schools and the Netherlands shutting down virtually all nighttime activity.

Around the world cases of the coronavirus topped 38 million, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

Saying measures needed to stop the virus “will hurt,” Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte announced what he called a “partial lockdown” on Tuesday evening, with sales of alcohol to be banned after 8 pm and bars, restaurants and coffee shops to be closed altogether. Citizens are being urged to avoid public transportation where possible.
