Worries about omikron | Universal knocks ASR out of AEX | And Room with Christmas recess

How fast is the omikron variant spreading through our country? The Outbreak Management Team is considering that question. And the inevitable follow-up question: should extra measures be taken to get this corona mutation under control?

Omikron will also be the main subject of one of the last councils of ministers of Rutte III. Because imagine that the extension of the evening lockdown until mid-January is not enough. It is already so difficult for people to stick to the rules, recently at the birthday party of an 18-year-old from Wassenaar.

It remains to be seen how long the House of Representatives can go on recess. That officially starts today. But suppose that things get completely out of hand again, then the parliamentarians may have to exchange their couch by the fire for their seat in The Hague. It would not be the first time that the House of Representatives has been recalled from recess due to the corona crisis.

Changing of the guard in the AEX: Universal Music Group knocks out insurer ASR. The record label of superstars such as Rihanna and Lady Gaga had a dream debut on the Damrak in the fall and displaces ASR from the premier division of the Dutch stock exchange. In London they are saying goodbye to Ryanair at the end of the trading day today. The Irish company is withdrawing from its UK listing due to Brexit.

Good luck for those who want to take the bus in the morning in Groningen or Drenthe. Drivers of transporter Qbuzz are discussing the nuisance in the bus lines to and from Ter Apel, according to the FNV trade union, caused by asylum seekers. State Secretary Ankie Broekers-Knol will soon also take a look.
