GGD, RIVM, government of THE NETHERLANDS:
STOP PLAYING WHACK-A-MOLE
WITH CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19!


The spread of the coronavirus is a fact. Countries such as Vietnam are taking excellent measures to contain the spread of this virus and to minimize the damage done. However, several countries including The Netherlands are not a part of this list. Currently, the bare minimum is being done in The Netherlands, in contrast to the World Health Organisation's call to action to ALL countries.

Recently, a group of 900 students traveled to northern Italy. Upon returning, a total of FOUR of them were tested due to fever symptoms, but none were quarantined and no further action was taken. As is usually done in regards to coronavirus (COVID-19) in The Netherlands, they were simply told to watch for symptoms and "stay home" if sick. Many large events are not being cancelled.

When students are infected at school, their fellow students are simply told not to worry, to "watch for symptoms", and then nothing else is done, in contrast to the preventive closing of schools that is being done elsewhere. It has been proven that these preventive measures are effective.

It is also notoriously difficult to even get tested to begin with. Meanwhile, the virus grows exponentially and the local health organisations claim that they have it under control, but their methods say otherwise, as do the accumulating numbers. The virus is highly infectious: a bare two months ago there were under 200 cases, now worldwide there are over 100.000 and these are merely confirmed cases.

Additionally, the Dutch media is also doing its very best to inform the people as little as possible. Adding to the above, it is known and even said by the World Health Organisation that the virus can be spread asymptomatically. The Dutch health organisations, GGD and RIVM, deny this. 

Something must be done before our country, which is among the most population dense countries of Europe, sees its hospitals reach maximum capacity with a no longer containable virus. We need more action. We need better action. We need it now.
