DEN HAAG (dpa-AFX) – In view of the very tense Corona situation in the Netherlands, firecrackers and rockets are also prohibited this year on New Year’s Eve due to the risk of injury. That was decided by the governing government in The Hague on Friday, as reported by the Dutch news agency ANP. The sale of fireworks for private use was also banned. It is about protecting the already overloaded clinics, the nursing staff and the police.
Last year, when there was also a ban on fireworks, the number of people injured by rockets and firecrackers who had to go to hospitals or a doctor fell by 70 percent compared to 2019. Fireworks organized by cities and small fireworks for children are still allowed. / evs / DP / ngu
