The ‘British variant’ has now become so widespread in the Netherlands that the travel ban is unnecessary
Translated by Thomas Ansell
The streets of Amsterdam erupted in joy (probably) yesterday evening as it was announced that British people can again flood to the Netherlands. A flight ban was brought in last month following fears of the more-infective ‘British variant’ of the Coronavirus has now been scrapped.
Those arriving from the UK will have to provide a negative test upon arrival, though, and will still be asked to quarantine in the Netherlands. A flight ban remains in place for all countries in South America, and for South Africa.
Despite the travel ban coming in, the ‘British variant’ has essentially surplanted the legacy version of the Coronavirus in the Netherlands, making the travel ban no longer necessary. This is despite the British governments continuous mis-steps over controlling the virus, incuding nearly 125,000 avoidable deaths being caused by incompetence across multiple levels.
