The Netherlands has decided to resume its lockdown policy as the number of new infections surpassed 16,000 per day.
Starting today, all supermarkets, restaurants and pubs will be open until 8pm and non-essential shops will be closed at 6pm.
However, as protests against the government’s strengthening of quarantine continue, concerns are deepening.
This hospital dedicated to treating COVID-19 patients in Munich, Germany, is no longer accepting patients.

There are even voices that the German medical system is on the verge of collapse.
The number of new COVID-19 cases in Germany yesterday exceeded 48,000.
The cumulative number of confirmed cases is approaching 5 million.
Berlin has banned non-vaccinated people from entering restaurants, movie theaters, museums and indoor theaters from next week.
The situation in the UK is even worse.
With a population of 68.2 million, there are 9.4 million confirmed cases of COVID-19.
At this rate, one in seven people will be infected with Corona 19.
British health experts have warned that it is only a matter of time before the cumulative number of confirmed cases exceeds 10 million if measures are not taken to make it mandatory right now to wear masks and vaccinate.
