Update 07:08 – Aboutaleb also wants to make masks more mandatory than just for shops

The mayor of Rotterdam, Ahmed Aboutaleb, also believes that in his region, mouth masks should not only be worn in shops, but also in other public spaces. In the AD he says: “I am pleased with the cabinet’s move towards mouth masks. If it were up to me, it doesn’t have to be limited to shops and supermarkets. Actually, this should be an advice for all residents, for all places where many people are together. Also think of town halls and museums. ”

Aboutaleb agrees with a similar plea by the mayors Halsema of Amsterdam, Van Zanen of The Hague and Jorritsma of Eindhoven. In their regions, the number of corona infections has risen sharply in recent times.

On Monday, Prime Minister Mark Rutte advised during his press conference to wear a mouth mask in shops. It is emphatically not an obligation, but retailers are allowed to refuse customers at the door who do not want to wear a mouth mask.

Update 07:00 – ‘Enforcement of corona rules is at the expense of other police work’

Enforcing the new corona measures will be at the expense of other police work. Jan Struijs, chairman of the Dutch Police Union, warns against this in response to the decision of the cabinet and the Security Council to take stricter corona measures.

“Inevitably”, says Struijs in De Telegraaf. “We will have to leave other tasks for longer, we also hope that this will be properly explained to citizens. Because this is now top priority, we understand that of course. ”

People will probably have to be more patient before they can report the crime. “That is not pleasant for citizens. Suppose you are burgled and you can only go after six weeks… But there is no other option. The police are already walking on their gums ”, says Struijs.
