1.5 Meter Monitor March 2020 – March 2021
To mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the Dutch government urges people to stay at home as much as possible and keep 1.5 meter distance to others in public. To what extent do people comply with these measures? How crowded are the streets of Amsterdam and do people keep 1.5-meter distance?
Based on footage of municipal surveillance cameras, we report monthly the status of social distancing and crowding on the streets of Amsterdam. We show developments during the day and over weeks. With this fourth factsheet, we add an additional eight weeks to the data we presented previously. Now the period of investigation covers March 5, 2020 to March 27, 2021.
