23 new corona infections were registered on Curaçao on Wednesday. That is the highest number in 24 hours. This means that there are 123 infections on the island. There are two corona patients in the hospital.
A large part of these new infections would have occurred because a choir had rehearsed last week. Such meetings are prohibited in Curaçao, precisely to prevent the virus from spreading.
Prime Minister Eugene Rhuggenaath stressed on Wednesday that the government has already taken several measures. For example, there is a curfew from Thursday and many activities and events are prohibited. But he also thinks it is important that everyone also takes responsibility for keeping the risk of spreading as small as possible.
