5:02 pm
straight to ne bianca who's in london for us. what is the latest we're hearing from authority? the netherlands below. so hearing as a, the investigation into whether or not more passengers will test positive the i'm a convergent is still underway. as you mentioned, there 13 of the 61 you tested positive coven 19. have now have their cases confirm, asked this a new variant. there was 624 passengers on 2 flights, one from cape town, one from johannesburg that arrived in the netherlands on friday. all $624.00 were held for several hours while this testing was underway and those that have tested positive for either the original variance or the new variant are now isolating. we believe a shipple airport in a designated hotel. it is, of course, one of the largest international travel hogs a in the world. and the dutch understandably are being very,
