Ace Pharmaceuticals from Zeewolde is guarded 24/7 by provincial police.

The company makes medications that can suppress the pathogenic effects of the coronavirus. The drug Chloroquine is included in the preliminary treatment plan of the RIVM.

Around the building there is a police car with a running engine on every corner. There is one striking car at the company on the Schepenveld. On the other corners are civilian cars with agents in them.

The police say that the property is under surveillance because of a suspicious situation that has arisen. The Ministry of Security and Justice also does not want to say anything about the police deployment for the time being. A spokesman for the municipality of Zeewolde says he does not know why there is a police force near the company.
