Dutch government not listening
For more than a week I have been trying to get more information from the right Dutch government agencies about how COVID-19 is being dealt with here. I sent several emails to a member of my political party and asked my question at the Ministry of Health. My party’s councilor wrote back a week later, saying that he had passed it on to his superior. From the government website I only received an automated email back. When I called the Ministry of Health information number today (070 3407911) to ask why the population here is so badly and incorrectly informed and why there was no warning about COVID-19 on their homepage, but a warning about the vulnerability of Citrix, I was told that I first had to look up corana through the search window. When I then wanted to ask more, I was told that he would no longer listen to me and the conversation was cut off. Are there more Dutch people who have tried to turn to the right people and how far have you come? I feel totally powerless here …
We Americans and I suspect many others from around the around the world would say the same thing.
Thus the Fourth Turning.
Well, there was a big show about a farmer who was looking for a woman, so 99% of the Dutch interest was satisfied.
If you need a listening ear at the governement you should dial one of the many 800-STASI numbers to rat your neighbour
What do you expect from a governement that chops complete forests in the USA and Canada, the ship the wood to Rotterdam by boat, then by train to powerplants to burn it for “CO2 neutral” electricity, while at the same time telling you not to heat your house with dead wood you gather….
The Dutch RIVM ( like CDC) is acting complete ignorant and downplaying the whole situation. Most of the MSM are repeating that, though the tune starts to become a little more serious. No restrictions for any holliday to Italy anywhere. People now returning from the Italian crisis Area should not worrie unless they are felling sick. Right, that will be in about 2 weeks with a lot of contact moments. I fear the moment that all the people that aren not informed over here will fall in immediate panic mode when it is here and containment measures are taken.
