In the Netherlands, refuted data on the arrival of radiation from Europe to Europe :: Society :: RBC

The National Institute of Public Health and the Environment stated that it is impossible to talk about Russia as a source of radiation. The organization only claims that the substances came from western Russia

Building of the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM)


The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in the Netherlands has denied media reports claiming that Russia has become a source of increased background radiation in Northern Europe. This was announced by the institute on its website.

The RIVM commented on its previous post, in which it claims that radionuclides came to Europe from western Russia. A Sunday report said that perhaps due to an incorrect translation (the message was posted in Dutch), some media mistakenly wrote that the radioactive substances came from Russia. “<...> it is not possible at this stage to determine a specific source country [веществ]”, – says the message of the RIVM.

In the first half of June, sensors from Norway, Finland and Sweden recorded an increase in the level of radionuclides in their territory. In particular, iodine-131 was found in Norway, and cesium-134, cesium-137, cobalt-60 and ruthenium-103 were found in Finland and Sweden. According to RIVM, the amount of substances was very low and did not harm human health and the environment. At the same time, the institute noted that the recorded radionuclides were the result of human activity.

bookings will recommence on the rise

In five days, the bell will sound the true end of the course and the start of summer vacation, after a year disrupted by the outbreak of Covid-19. For some young people, summer break rhyme with summer camps. In normal times, they are 855 000 from to stay in the collective. But what will it be this year ? Several trips have been cancelled by the organisers or committees of companies following the closure of certain reception centres. Many parents, also, have preferred to forgo enrolling their children in a context of health crisis new.

Usually, the bulk of the enrolment takes place in march and Aprilsays Johann Olivier, managing director at Holidays for all – League education. But with the containment, we have had a decline in bookings of around 40 %. “In the UCPA, one table, also on a minimum of 30 % of entries and a loss of” 100 million euro 300 million budget for the group “who manages 250 holiday sites. ” This is colossal “analysis Valerie Lourdel, director of communications.

The families that had enrolled their children prior to confinement, on the other hand, have not always sought to cancel, ensures Johann Olivier. ” Most have, instead, asked to be able to change their stay. They were waiting for the instructions of the government to know what to do. And we also, by the way. If the limit of 100 km to travel had been maintained, we would not have been able to organize most of stay, as much as a third of our 140 structures had already closed.

A health protocol very light

The intervention of Édouard Philippe, on 28 may, has, therefore, sounded like a release for all. On this day, the prime minister announced the end of the déconfinement progressive, with, in particular, the authorization to travel throughout the territory and the reopening of schools. In the aftermath, the health protocol for the community facilities of minors has been reduced.

Now, the number of children per group will no longer be limited to 12, as announced in a first time. And the bunk beds will be permitted, provided that the sleeping or ” head-to-tail “. The distance of one meter between the beds must be respected. The port of the mask, it will not be longer” mandatory for supervisors [que] when the distance physics will not be possible “. As for the meals, they will be served according to the same rules as in the hospitality industry : a distance of one meter between the tables or screens, if this regulatory gap is not possible.

Even the stays abroad are allowed, is Anne Carayon, executive director of Youth in the open air, the Russian in charge of promoting the departure of children on holiday. Unfortunately, to this date, it is too late to organize it. “

The sector has, however, found ” a positive dynamic “

Still, the déconfinement progressive, with the return of children to school, has reassured a lot of families. According to a survey of the Observatory of vacation and recreation of children and young people (Ovlej), in may, 48 % of surveyed parents” contemplated departure of a group stay “for their offspring this summer. They were even 70 % among parents who had planned to do before the confinement.

At the UCPA,” we feel the urge send the kids to summer camp to allow them to open up to others and to reconnect with classmates of their age “notes Valerie Lourdel. Since a few days, the demand is large, massive even, but, unfortunately, it is not enough to make up for the delay “predicts it.

Anne Carayon made the same observation, but ensures that the sector has regained” a positive dynamic “. ” Families come back to us and this is only the beginning, she says. The organizers will stay until the end of August. ”

Now, they also count on the support of the State which has put in place the device “colonies of learning “ to enable 250 000 young people from priority neighbourhoods of urban policy, in particular, to go on vacation this summer.
