The government is tightening up measures to combat the sharp increase in coronavirus infections.
Amsterdam: is the capital and most populous city of the Netherlands; with a population of 872,680 within the city proper, 1,558,755 in the urban area and 2,480,394 in the metropolitan area.

Found within the province of North Holland.

Amsterdam is colloquially referred to as the “Venice of the North”, due to the large number of canals which form a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There will be no municipally organised New Year’s Еve celebrations this year in Amsterdam, the city website informed yesterday. Mayor Femke Halsema has decided to cancel both the main celebration on Museumplein, where the national countdown to the New Year usually happens, as well as the firework displays in the city’s districts.

The reason is the raising number of coronavirus infections and hospital admissions, which caused the central government to impose a partial lockdown starting last weekend.

The government is tightening up measures to combat the sharp increase in coronavirus infections.
