Good morning!

It will be a sunny summer day. With a moderate easterly wind, it is already 22 to 25 degrees by noon. The maximum temperature falls at the end of the afternoon and is between 27 degrees in the north and local 30 in the south.

Are you going on the road? Here you will find an overview of the activities. And here you can see where work is being done on the track.

What can you expect today?

  • The summer recess of the House of Representatives is over. The question hour is the first item on the agenda for the representatives of the people. The rest of the week they spend a lot of time looking at which topics can and cannot be discussed as long as the cabinet is outgoing.
  • The court case about the murder of Peter R. de Vries continues. The case with nine suspects is being handled in the court bunker in Amsterdam-Osdorp. During the hearing, research wishes are discussed, among other things, and the court considers what is still necessary for the substantive treatment.
  • The former leader of the right-wing militia Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, will be sentenced for his involvement in the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. A prison sentence of 33 years has been demanded.

What did you miss?

The Dutch healthcare sector is struggling financially. Nearly 1 in 3 healthcare providers suffered a loss last year. This is evident from EY’s annual healthcare barometer.

Never before have such bad figures been reported, says the consultancy and consultancy firm. This is partly due to the corona crisis and the rising absenteeism among staff. According to EY, the future does not look good either. The consultancy is calling for more prevention and rethinking of the healthcare system to address the problems.

And then this:

An Australian who fell seriously ill in Antarctica has been taken from the South Pole.

The man worked with about 20 colleagues at the remote Casey station, a research station in the Antarctic. His health deteriorated to such an extent last week that he required specialist care. It was then decided to send an icebreaker to Antarctica to collect it.

After a journey of more than 3,000 kilometers, the ship arrived at Antarctica, about 150 kilometers from the research station. The man was then picked up at the base by helicopters. The Australian is now on board the icebreaker, which is now sailing back to Tasmania. He will receive all the necessary care on the ship.
