LIVE Bruls: Mayors satisfied with ‘robust and solid’ package of measures

The number of coronavirus infections in the Netherlands is increasing sharply; we are in the second wave. At the same time, the death toll is still less compared to the first wave. Elsewhere in the world, Israel has gone back into full lockdown and more places for holidaymakers are coloring orange. There are over a million coronadodes worldwide, almost 210,000 of whom are in the US. Follow the latest coronan news in this live blog.

The 25 mayors in the Security Council strongly support the national measures taken by the Cabinet against Corona. In their view, a regional approach would only create ambiguity. โ€œSince we took regional measures in August, infections have grown. Against this background, you can now only come up with national policy,โ€ said President Hubert Bruls, mayor of Nijmegen.

He calls the package of measures of the Cabinet โ€œrobust and firm.โ€ โ€œWe quickly agreed with the package. We have one story now, and we support it. We need to park the specific regional approach in the closet for a while. The national approach is now much more effective.โ€

A possible cap duty led to a lot of discussion within the deliberations. According to Bruls, the cabinet is still trying to figure out to what extent those mouthcaps make sense. โ€œThats not what the experts are talking about.โ€ In the three major cities, the advice is to wear mouthguards in stores in the next few weeks. โ€œThis is a crisis of 17.5 million people. Also for customers and retailers in the big cities where this advice will apply.โ€
