Also PVV leader Geert Wilders, who made so far is very critical about the Dutch approach to the corona crisis, a call for people to stay at home as much as possible. “The intensive care capacity is now running at very fast to its maximum limits, many people still go just to terraces, beaches, parks and shops without sufficient distance,” Wilders said on twitter. “There must now be a quick short #lockdown people and if possible please stay home!”

According Wallinga is now broadcast the NL-Alert irrespective of whether the correct estimate. “We want the widest possible participation of all the people on the measures taken. The more people follow government instructions, the better. “The models RIVM calculates what measures are necessary to maximize immunity among the population to build without us going over the available capacity in intensive care.
