Amsterdam mayor Femke Halsema wants tourism to restart "cautiously and carefully" and in such a way that tourists are also attracted to less crowded areas of the Netherlands, she said on Op1. She is worried that a sudden flood of tourists will mean a second wave of coronavirus infections. "We don't want Amsterdam to be hit again," she said, NU.nl and AT5 report.
"If the budget flights start again, [a new coronavirus wave] is a risk," Halsema said. "Everyone knows the image of the Red Light District, where you can walk over heads."
