Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
The drama continues, regardless of plot thickening or not thickening.

So, meanwhile, back in Amsterdam:
Sixty-one arriving airplane passengers tested positive for COVID.
No specifying which strain of COVID.
All sixty-one were urgently requested to isolate and quarantine in a hotel.

What also is not specified, is if there were additional passengers
whose test results were negative, but who were
spouses or relatives or partners of those who tested positive,
and who have stayed with them in isolation regardless.

Latest AFP update states:
Thirteen of those sixty-one [people] have tested positive for the new Omicron variant.

In the meanwhile, some of these passengers had flown to Amsterdam
in hopes of changing planes and going somewhere else to go home.

One adult couple went so far as to not only leave the hotel --
"In the Netherlands, it is NOT illegal to be outside when you have [positive results from COVID screening]" --
but they bought tickets and got on a plane to Spain
"But when you go into a plane knowing you have it, then it is another story".

Details remain incomplete to the point of being misleading.
It is further stated that
only one person in this couple
had had positive results from the COVID screening test.
Which variant is left unstated.
