Mild measures taken in the Netherlands
Yesterday night the Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, held a speech concerning the COVID-19 virus on national television. He explained why the Dutch government is taking relatively mild safety measures. The reasoning behind it is that a complete lockdown would stretch out the period the virus could be active for much longer. According to their experts in the field, mild measures will prevent hospitals from becoming too crowded and at the same time allowing the Dutch population to slowly build up immunity for the virus. He mentioned specifically that he does not want a total lock down at any time, but did mention they look at a situation on a day to day basis.
We keep on working with the small team that we have. However, we do take our own actions in respect to having less social interactions so as to minimize the risk we pose to our beloved elderly safe from harm.
