Along with many other European countries, The Netherlands has also been struck by the Corona Virus outbreak. Noord Brabant, a province in the southern part of the Netherlands, has been affected the worst. In Amsterdam, fewer infections have been found; 20 currently. The Dutch Government has now taken measures to fight the outbreak. All events with more than 100 persons have been prohibited. In Amsterdam, the bigger museums and attractions are closed until the end of March. Public transport and airports are still open. Authorities have advised anyone in the Netherlands to take the following precautions;
Avoid large groups (more than 100 people).
Wash your hands regularly.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Cough and sneeze into your inner elbow.
Turn away from others coughing or sneezing.
Use paper tissues to contain your coughs and blow your nose.
