Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Are the measures against COVID-19 failing? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
There have been running battles between rioters and police across cities in the Netherlands for several days.
Many Dutch people have been outraged by a curfew; the first to be imposed since the end of second world war.
The nation had a more relaxed approach to stop the spread of COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic – but infections have surged.
It’s now stepping up its measures to face the threat of more contagious strains detected in the UK and South Africa.
But as governments bring in new and tougher measures — are they losing control?
