Of rather outspoken opinion diva sat there for a Golden Televizier Ring Gala afterthought (check the winners and losers here), but that’s not at all what viewers raved about. That moment came when she briefly broke into a conversation between OMT member and pediatrician Károly Illy and economist Robin Fransman, who both advocated a long-term corona strategy with more freedom for young people.
‘Annoy me to death’
“Traffic is more dangerousRobin said of young people for whom the coronavirus “completely harmlessHe pleads for schools and courses to be kept open as much as possible. That went down the wrong way for Angela. “That’s not true at all, is it? “she began. “Yes, sorry, I’m really annoyed. This is exactly what has been annoying me on television for ages and I really want your speaking time and I mean I’m also one of those 17 million virologists I’ve been to. death to worse, but we now know from studies that not all young people get sick from it, but that if they get sick, that the consequences are sometimes very bad and six months later they are even fatally tired? heart and their lungs?“
Károly Illy is pleased that children up to the age of 18 are included in the corona policy. But young people aged 18+ are forgotten.

‘Virologist De Jong’
Children and young adults rarely get as sick as Angela says, emphasizes pediatrician Károly Illy. “They are really exceptions when getting as sick as you describe.And economist Robin thinks she’s been overly influenced by social media. ”JYou are really misinformed. That heart damage and lung damage in young people: it is extremely rare. It really hasn’t been proven.“Angela was not satisfied.”Yes, even though it’s very rare, I don’t want it to happen to my kids“, she reasoned. It even earned her the name ‘virologist De Jong’ from presenter Jort Kelder.
Viewers at home are typing out their frustrations en masse on Twitter. Here are some of the annoyances:
Geraaskal by Angela de Jong. Welmoed: here at the table are experts, doctors and a citizen with a gut feeling. Thanks. 🙏🏼 #on 1

Angela de Jong turns out to be the most annoying pseudo-virologist in the country for a while. Good, because the competition is fiercer than with the #televizierring

Can we cancel Angela de Jong as an amateur virologist? #On 1

Angela de Jong is disrupting an interesting discussion. Half screaming. Super annoying. # Op1npo

Angela de Jong represents the naive Dutchman in this conversation #ON 1

Shut up Angela de Jong. Do you stick to the rules. Dying is part of life. Having an eye for the damage to at least young people is humanity. ALSO humanity.

I’m curious what Angela de Jong will do about her own hysterical performance tomorrow #On 1 is going to write.

Maybe someone can publish a review tomorrow about the performance of virologist Angela de Jong at #on 1. Embarrassing how she took over the conversation with blanks and gut feelings. Too bad this went off the airtime of the two experts. Because they certainly had a point.

#on 1 It shouldn’t get any crazier that Mrs. Angela de Jong is going to lecture a doctor like an angry child …

Angela de Jong was emotionally out of control # op1npo about the corona approach.

Yet Angela also got some supporters. Not everyone thought her reasoning was bullshit.
I thought it was right, the questions Angela de Jong asked. We keep getting unclear information from the experts. As a mother of young people she wanted to
hear good info about this. She took her chance and asked her questions. Everything is so often vague. Every expert says something different.

You can find a lot about Angela de Jong …
But she DOES stand up for the vulnerable young people / people who have become seriously ill from corona! These crazy times affect almost everyone, everyone in different areas!#On 1 # NPO1 #Corona #AngelaDeJong

Honor where credit is due. Angela de Jong says by far the most sensible things at number 1. Looking back is revealing yet another virologist bringing up herd immunity again.
