Against omicron: All European countries choose different course of action

Neighboring countries currently have less stringent policies. It is reckoned that the Dutch moved to Germany and Belgium due to the closure of many stores in their own country. The Belgian city government said they were ready for it. For example, additional staff will be deployed on the shopping streets to manage the expected crowds in the right direction.

Restaurant closing time

Meanwhile, new restrictive measures are taking effect in other European countries. In Ireland, catering establishments must close at 8pm on Mondays. Denmark is closed today for, among other things, theaters, cinemas, zoos and amusement parks. The restaurant may stay open until 11pm.

Increasing vaccination campaigns is also seen as a way to protect citizens from the micron variant. For example, more and more adults in Europe are gaining access to booster injections and young children are now being vaccinated too. Portugal hopes to give tens of thousands of children under 12 their first vaccinations this weekend.

Omicron Plague

In the UK, more than half of adults already have a booster. The country is facing a major micron epidemic. Health Minister Sajid Javid has not ruled out additional coronavirus measures before Christmas.

Other Europeans may also have to deal with stricter coronavirus policies. Italy is considering tightening the measures, according to local media. France had to do without the traditional fireworks display in Paris this New Year’s Eve.
