Why are there so few coronatesten in the Netherlands. There are plenty of beds in the intensive care unit? And why was the communication of the new measures, to be so confusing? Even though the Second Room is firmly behind the stance of government towards addressing the coronacrisis, it sounds too gentle a criticism.

“Clarity is essential to leadership, especially in times of crisis,” said Rob Jetten (D66) on Thursday in the parliamentary debate on the appointment policy. The best in front of the tv speech of the prime minister, Mark Rutte in the netherlands last week has given way to a mild criticism.

It is critical to include in the data a press conference on Monday. The government has announced measures to increase and major events, to June 1, to do these things. At the same time, called into question the previously-announced regulations for the schools, and the variety of which is up to april 6, will apply. What is and what is not?

“There is a geblunderd”, was labor party leader Lodewijk Asscher. The criticism sounds like wall-to-wall. Also, the liberal democrats, british national Party and the christian democrats believe that it is better to have. “The message coming from the government, it should be clear,” said Pieter Heerma (CDA). CU-conductor: Gert-Jan Segers: “Communicate clearly and avoid confusion.”

to Ensure ict capacity and coronatesten

In preparation for the debate in the Chamber on Wednesday brought up to date by the GOVERNMENT, the boss, Jaap van Dissel, and Diederik Gommers, president of the Dutch Society of Intensive Care units.

As Of the Tongue was able to report that the spread of the virus, it seems to put the brakes on it, had the Gommers have a disturbing message. He said that the Netherlands is at the moment not enough beds in the intensive care units to the expected increase in the number of seriously ill patients have to deal with that. “Everything is settling down at the moment,” said Gommers. According to him, it is a key control is needed.

On april 1, are expected to have about 1,600 beds be needed, while in the netherlands 1.150 locations on the ic’s. The peak is in late may, and then there are about 2.200 beds are needed.

the prime Minister, Hugo Young (public Health) reiterated earlier this week what the ic’s are facing right now, but it was not clear whether the sixteen hundred beds on 1st april, ready for delivery. “It’s exciting,” he said.

That’s according to the Asscher is not enough: “there is no need for a description of the situation at this point in time. I would like to know what is required.” This is true not only for ic-beds, but also medical equipment for all health care providers.

there are Also questions about the amount of coronatesten the Netherlands. Want to know why, in the Netherlands there is little to be tested, and how the capacity can be scaled up.

the Room will be done by means of testing, to enforce

at The “test capacity in the Netherlands has a deficit,” says Jetten. “If the Netherlands can not be large-scale testing, such as that in South Korea going on?” Mr Wilders said: “We need to make more tests. Why do we do it?”

finally, The government has, on several occasions to let them know not to be on a large scale, to be able to test it, because there is a worldwide shortage of. According to Asscher, that the government has no reason to have to come up with a reason. “The fact that we have less testing, they do not lead to the observation that there is a shortage, but according to what you are going to take care of that for testing to be done.” Seger: “Does Holland have enough for the tests to come?”

From the examination of the Follow-the-Money, revealed earlier on Thursday that the Dutch laboratories due to its dependence on the Swiss company Roche, is not in itself en masse coronatesten to be able to produce.

for example, If pharmaceutical companies refuse to have their recipe for the coronatesten to release it, then the government is in the best interest of the public health, to proceed to the dwangvorderingen, there will be a majority in the Chamber. “The government needs to do anything, including force, to make up a test.”
