Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah .... holidays in Spain ... happy hour in bars and all night festivals ... let's have fun and just be very stupid!

Netherlands could hear about new coronavirus measures tomorrow | NL Times |

Thus far, nearly 17.3 million vaccine doses have been given, with 78.1 percent of the adult public having received at least one vaccine shot, and at least 46.8 percent considered fully vaccinated.

In the UK vaccinations are provided based on a percentage of the adult population. This is about 2/3 of the total population. The Delta variant spreads in the groups of non-vaxxers and young people. Thus the "let her rip" mentality has now taken hold. Either you get a jab, preferably two for max protection, or you will get it through herd spread.

The Dutch are the laboratory or Petri dish for the Delta variant and a few weeks ahead of Boris Johnson and his set date in stone of July 19th. Boris and Mark as the sciences of Oxford have been in step with one another from early March 2020.

Soon the Netherlands will have switched from green to amber to red in a matter of 14 days. Not participating in this madness are the owners of nightclubs and multiple day festivals ... to protect their own and employees who have been infected as well when the regulations were lifted end of June.

Six in ten Dutch think Covid-19 measures were abolished too soon

The Delta variant is on the move.

23.4% of the world has received a COVID vaccine. See how your country is doing | Fortune |

Among the countries with the highest percentage of vaccinated residents are Iceland (75.9%), Canada (68%), the U.K. (65.7%), Chile (65.5%), Uruguay (64.7), and Israel (64.5%). [Most EU Nations are well above 50%. Pop. Netherlands is 17.5 million, stats RIVM vaccination doses as of yesterday 17.3 Million 1st and 2nd jabs combined. 10.9 Million have received at least one jab. I'm just a simple mind, seems that's closer to 85% of age 18 and older. 😊

Rate of vaccinations is well over 1.2 million jabs each week ... year of birth 2007 are now eligible for an appointment.
