At the beginning of 2021, Dutch students had an average of about 15,000 euros in student debt. That is the same as a year earlier; the number of students with a student loan has increased. In 2020, the government took a number of measures to help students financially, for example if they suffered a study delay due to corona.

Employees with mild corona symptoms are back to work faster than last year. They report better faster and are sick less than employees who were infected with the corona virus last year, according to figures from ArboNed and HumanCapitalCare.

Can gas be extracted again at Weststellingwerf? The Ministry of Economic Affairs already gave permission for this in 2019, but the municipalities of Weststellingwerf and Ooststellingwerf and various residents, among others, see no point in the plans. The Council of State will make a decision today.

In Germany, the new corona law comes into effect. This makes it mandatory for Germans to go to work or to travel by public transport with a corona ticket. People must have been vaccinated, cured or recently tested negative for the coronavirus. In the Netherlands, the 1,5 meter rule applies again from today.
