The mayors of the Security Council appear to be in favor of a mouth cap. “A sacrifice must be made to prevent corona”, says Annemarie Penn-te Strake of Maastricht, prior to the consultation.
Prior to their meeting in the provincial house in Utrecht, several administrators announced that face masks can help to stop the rapidly increasing number of corona infections.
If it does not help, it does not harm
“My proposal is to do this generically as much as possible. That is clear for enforcement and communication. It is confusing if such a duty is in force in one region and not in another”, says John Jorritsma of Eindhoven. Pieter Broertjes from Hilversum believes that we are ready for masks in public spaces, shops and supermarkets. “If it doesn’t help, it doesn’t hurt. It gives shape to the urgency.”
The number of infections is rising sharply and according to mayors, people should become aware that they are complying with the measures. Mouth masks can help with this. “Our behavior must change, that is clear”, emphasizes mayor Jack Mikkers of Den Bosch.
Rising hospital admissions
Chairman Hubert Bruls is still on the flat and leaves the decision about masks to the cabinet. According to him, those mouth masks only have a supportive effect. “It seems obvious to me that we have to take action to turn the tide. The numbers are rising. The increasing number of hospital admissions is particularly worrying,” said the mayor of Nijmegen.
Monday evening at 7 p.m. Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Minister of Health Hugo de Jonge will announce during a press conference which additional measures against corona will come into effect.
