How do we stop omikron?
At least thirteen travelers who arrived at Schiphol on two flights from South Africa last Friday are infected with omikron. There are great concerns about this new variant of the coronavirus.
Israel imposes a travel ban on all foreigners in an effort to stop the spread of omikron. The United Kingdom requires all travelers to pass a negative test before entering the country. Travelers from southern Africa to the Netherlands must take a rapid test and a PCR test before departure. Outgoing minister Hugo de Jonge is not yet taking stricter measures.
Wouldn’t it be better if the Netherlands also intervenes harder? We speak with the World Health Organization and with correspondents Ties Brock in Israel and Launspach Flower in the UK.
