Police in the Netherlands said Monday that they issued 6,959 fines last week for those breaking the rules of the country’s national 9 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. curfew.
It's a drop from the 10,810 curfew fines that Dutch police issued the previous week.
Violating the national curfew, which was designed to reduce social interaction and thus the spread of coronavirus, comes at a cost of 95 euros (approximately US $114).
It's been in effect since January 23.
Last week, the Dutch government extended the nation’s lockdown until at least March 2, and said that it will also consider extending the curfew before it expires on February 10.
Police also say that they also issued 8,139 fines last week related to other coronavirus regulations, for example for not wearing a mask.
That is also down from the previous week, when 12,938 fines were issued.
