Member of OMT: ‘The cabinet’s approach to corona in nursing homes is too thin’


At the moment, there is only a mandatory mouth cap for nursing homes in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. “I am not at all satisfied with it”, says Hertogh.

Regional measures will not solve anything

“At the moment, the situation across the country is already such that you have to take measures spread across the country. You cannot solve anything with regional measures or at home level: this is already necessary for the entire country.”

The virus can enter nursing homes in several ways. To prevent this, the OMT – and Hertogh thus – advise the cabinet to take specific measures.

Use coarser

“People who work in a nursing home must all wear a mouth mask. New residents or residents who return from the hospital must be tested. They must also be quarantined first. And visitors must wear masks. Staff must also be tested often,” says Hertogh against RTL Nieuws.

“I don’t understand why you don’t use more crudely for this sector, which has been hit so hard. You can always downshift.”
