The Security Region South Limburg decided on Friday evening after a crisis meeting with the mayors of five large border municipalities not to cancel all major events in the border region, but to leave it to the municipalities themselves which events will or will not take place. There are many carnival parades planned in the area that could not take place earlier due to the strong wind. These are currently at risk due to the increase in COVID-19 infections in neighboring German municipalities.

These are events where many Dutch and Germans from the border region come together and the national border "plays no role in daily life". The Security Region calls on the border municipalities to "avoid" these events. During the crisis meeting on Friday evening, the mayors of the border municipalities of Sittard-Geleen, Beekdaelen, Brunssum, Landgraaf and Kerkrade were seated.

"Events will probably be canceled," says a spokesperson for the Security Region in conversation with, but no concrete statements have yet been made about which events will or will not take place, she adds.

Earlier this week, the youngest child of the Amsterdam woman with coronavirus infection was picked up from CompaNanny Atlas Arena daycare center with minor complaints, Halsema reported during the press conference. This is a daycare center for (Dutch and foreign) babies and toddlers. The woman has been here for a while, but is not working there. Her child at this day care center has minor complaints and is currently being tested for the virus.

The infected woman had also been at the Laterna Magica primary school this week, a "learning and living community". This community school does not only teach according to the regular schedule. Children can go there 52 weeks a year from 7.30 am to 6.30 pm. It is unclear whether her other child who currently has minor symptoms went to this school or to another school (one where the woman has not been). Both school-age children are currently being tested.

The large international tourism trade fair ITB in Berlin is canceled for the first year ever due to the outbreak of COVID-19 virus. The organizers canceled the fair because it could not meet the strict conditions imposed by local authorities due to the corona outbreak.

Every year more than 100,000 people from around ten thousand companies come to the fair. The fair was first held in 1966 and this year was planned from 4 to 8 March.

yesterday at 8:01 PM

So far for the press conference. This is what we know so far:

- An Amsterdam woman in a temporary home in Diemen is infected with the corona virus. She has minor complaints and is at home in isolation.

- She lives there with partner and three children. Two children have minor complaints. Whether they have contracted the virus is currently being investigated.

- The infected woman went to a daycare center in the Zuidoost district (CompaNanny Atlas Arena) and to a primary school in IJburg (Laterna Magica). Contact research is used to determine whether employees and children of these places are at any risk, but there is as yet no cause for concern, according to Halsema.

yesterday at 7:57 PM

The school on IJburg where the mother has been and one of her children is attending, is called Laterna Magica.

yesterday at 7:56 PM

In France, the number of corona cases has risen from 41 to 57, French health minister Olivier Veran reports Friday.

The minister advises people not to shake hands. He adds that several schools in the north of Paris will remain closed after the holiday that ends this Sunday, to prevent the virus from spreading.

A number of coronavirus infections have been found at Creil military base, north of Paris, defense minister Florence Parly says on her Twitter account.

yesterday at 7:56 PM

Much remains unclear about the health of the three children currently being tested. One child has complaints and is at the daycare center. A second child also has symptoms, and in addition, the mother went to a primary school in IJburg. It is still unclear whether this is the primary school of the second child with complaints. No statements are made about the third school, because the mother has not been there.

yesterday at 7:53 PM

The woman returned from Italy on February 23, where she had been since the 20th.

yesterday at 7:51 PM

The contact investigation uses diaries of the patients, which show who has been in contact with, for example, the wife or children. At every contact a doctor estimates how risky that was.

yesterday at 7:50 PM

Halsema emphasizes: "The two schools that we mention are the two schools where the woman herself has been present." This concerns the school on IJburg and the daycare center in Southeast. Schools in Diemen are therefore completely excluded.

yesterday at 7:48 PM

"It is not a very contagious virus," the GGD emphasizes. Halsema adds: "Very thorough research is being done, there is no reason for unrest."

yesterday at 7:46 PM

According to Halsema, "one of the children has no complaints at all". We conclude from this that both the child at the crèche age and one of the children at the primary school age have complaints.

yesterday at 7:45 PM

It would appear from a letter from the day care center that the child at the day care center has also developed complaints. The GGD responds to this: "The day it got those complaints, it was picked up at the daycare center. At the moment, the complaints are mild."

yesterday at 7:44 PM

The daycare center will be closed for the next two weeks. Primary school is not yet. Halsema responds: "That is a decision of the day care center itself, that is not on the advice of the Amsterdam GGD. There is currently no reason to do so."

yesterday at 7:44 PM

The infected woman is an employee at the Amsterdam UMC (location AMC). That hospital itself conducts contact investigations in the workplace.

yesterday at 7:43 PM

Family members are currently preventive in isolation: it is therefore still unclear whether they are infected. The standard protocol came into effect, according to the GGD. The RIVM and the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam will give a definitive answer about the possible virus in their body.

yesterday at 7:41 PM

A spokesperson for the GGD Amsterdam will speak about the investigation. "This morning we immediately started mapping the most direct contacts of the woman: the partner and the three children. These three were sampled immediately, this morning and this afternoon." She expects this result later tonight or tomorrow morning.

yesterday at 7:40 PM

The municipality of Amsterdam is involved in the investigation because the women's network is largely in Amsterdam, even now that she is temporarily living in Diemen, the mayor of Diemen emphasizes.

yesterday at 7:38 PM

"Events and sports events planned for the coming days, in Amsterdam and the surrounding municipalities, can continue as usual. Public life in the region can continue as usual," says Halsema. It does, however, point out that people "must take into account the general precautions of the GGD". Hereby she refers to things like hand washing.

yesterday at 7:37 PM

"In the municipality of Diemen and Amsterdam, additional measures are now unnecessary", Halsema emphasizes.

yesterday at 7:37 PM

The children from the daycare and the school received a letter with the urgent call to keep a close eye on their children for possible symptoms. Parents have access to GGD specialists via a separate telephone number.

yesterday at 7:36 PM

The woman was at the daycare center in Amsterdam-Zuidoost this week and a primary school in the IJburg district.

yesterday at 7:36 PM

It is therefore currently unclear whether there are more infections in Amsterdam and / or Diemen.

yesterday at 7:36 PM

"The GGD immediately started an investigation into the contacts of the woman. The family consists of her partner and her three children. We cannot yet report the results of those tests."

yesterday at 7:35 PM

"The Amsterdam woman was in northern Italy last week, we suspect she contracted the virus there. She has mild symptoms, so she does not need to be admitted to the hospital."

yesterday at 7:35 PM

Halsema emphasizes: "We too are still struggling with a number of uncertainties."

yesterday at 7:35 PM

Mayor Halsema introduces those present: the mayor of Diemen, someone from the GGD Amsterdam and the director of the security region. Halsema acts as chairman of the Amsterdam-Amstelland Security Region.

yesterday at 7:34 PM

The press conference is about to begin. Mayor Halsema of Amsterdam and her colleagues take their places.

yesterday at 7:31 PM
