LIVE | De Jonge: ‘Only our behavior can break the second wave’ | Inland

Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health) emphasizes Monday evening prior to the Security Council that the Netherlands must understand ‘the seriousness of the situation’. “We must brace ourselves for additional measures.”

Initially, only Minister Ferd Grapperhaus (Security) was supposed to attend the consultation of the mayors of the 25 security regions on behalf of the cabinet, but De Jonge also sits down to discuss the package of measures.

According to him, these extra rules are necessary because they have “failed to reverse the trend of the increasing number of hospital admissions and infections.” The minister does not want to reveal which they are. “I don’t want to get ahead of tomorrow’s decision-making.” Then the cabinet will announce the final package in a press conference.

Ultimately, according to De Jonge, it is mainly about people’s behavior. “Only our behavior can break this second wave and then control it. Only measures will not succeed. ”
