Many people still go outside if they have complaints associated with the corona virus. The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) reports this on the basis of an investigation in collaboration with the GGDs.
More than 50,000 people were asked about their opinion of the corona measures and whether they adhered to them. Most people said they agreed with the measures, but 80 percent said they would go out with symptoms of the coronavirus, such as a cold or fever. 40 percent of those questioned went to work with complaints. Only 12 percent of people had themselves tested for the virus.
Many people have not yet been tested because they do not know when exactly this is allowed. They find the conditions unclear, RIVM reports. Many people also blame the complaints on other causes, such as hay fever.
Do you get tested immediately as soon as you start to cough, have a sore throat, a snot nose or an increase? Or would you rather wait and see if the symptoms get worse before you consider going to the test street?
