Sign language interpreter Irma Sluis responds to coughing during press conference


“I am not ill”, Irma immediately reassures. Where since the start of the corona crisis it has been recommended to cough and sneeze into your elbow, the sign language interpreter did that in her hand last night.

“I had a stitch in my throat and it made me quite nervous.” She indicates that the coughing in her hand went ‘unconsciously’. “It was also the speed that went with it. Although I did not do it consciously, but otherwise you will be four sentences behind Mark Rutte in terms of speed.”

Irma’s cough was seen and noticed by many. “I find it very unfortunate that there is so much reaction today,” she tells RTL Boulevard. “It can just happen and that is of course annoying.” Moreover, there is no risk that she infected the prime minister with corona. “My son and everyone in our family recently had a cold. I had a corona test and it was negative.” She also says that she ‘hopes everyone will have forgotten it tomorrow’.
