Young people in particular contract corona infections. This is mainly because they celebrate parties in home situations and if one person is infected, the virus can spread quickly. “Then you have the dolls dancing”, says Hoebe. Such corona fires have not yet been detected in Limburg, he says.
The source and contact investigation is also going well in Limburg, Hoebe concludes. According to him, it is possible to trace 98 percent of the contamination sources in Limburg. In the first week of August, the GGD in Limburg conducted just over 4000 tests. “The infections are also in Limburg in young people between 20 and 30 years old.” Because they often do not become seriously ill from the virus, the number of hospital admissions in Limburg remains low, Hoebe explains.
He calls on people with corona-related complaints to have themselves tested. According to Hoebe, many people are used to getting sick first and only when that does not help to visit the doctor. “Almost corona is different,” says Hoebe. “Get tested right away, so we can stem the spread of the virus.”
