    An explosion blew out the windows of a COVID-19 testing centre in the town of Bovenkarspel in North Holland, Dutch police said on Wednesday. Nobody was injured in the blast, which occurred just before 7am. Menno Hartenber, a spokesman for North Holland police, told Euronews “a small metal object or pipe, 10cm in length, was attached to the side of the COVID-19 test centre”. He told Euronews the loud blast was heard by people nearby, and it left five windows shattered. In January, a coronavirus testing centre in the nearby town of Urk was set on fire by rioters opposed to the country’s lockdown.
