Good morning! Grab your breakfast and sit down. Here’s what news you missed last night and what’s going to happen today.
There are a lot of clouds today, but every now and then the sun will shine. Take your raincoat with you just in case, because there may be a shower in some places. It will be 13 to 15 degrees.
This is what happened while you were sleeping:
– Thousands of employees of eight university hospitals have been working since last night to strike. They will not work until 12 midnight to draw attention to the high workload. They also want to earn more. Due to the strike, many hospital appointments and operations have been postponed. In the event of an emergency, patients can go to the hospital.
– Children sit too much and move too little. That’s what four Dutch sports associations say. That would not only be unhealthy, but also bad for top sport in the Netherlands. According to the unions, children must be in good condition in order to perform as top athletes later on.
– Football club NEC will play in its own stadium in the near future, but without an audience. Last Sunday, part of the stands collapsed, so that no audience is allowed to sit anymore. NEC hoped to use another club’s stadium, but they all said no.
