The Netherlands has reached the phase where more risks must be taken with the corona virus.

That said outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte during a press conference on Tuesday evening.

According to Rutte, that risk lies in, among other things, the reopening of secondary education.

The epidemiological situation has not improved in recent weeks.

The number of positive tests even increased again last week (19 percent).

The room to relax is, according to the RIVM, "very small" and the choice to relax is a "political one".

According to top woman Aura Timen of the institute, people are "done with the measures" and it is up to society which consequences of letting go of measures it accepts.
