PVV leader Geert Wilders believes that all Dutch people must adhere to the corona measures of the cabinet. Even if he himself does not agree with all the measures. “We live in a democracy in which there are rules that must be enforced,” said Wilders during the corona debate in the House of Representatives.
Other party leaders attacked the PVV leader because of his tweet last weekend. In it he said that operations and treatments for some Dutch people are being postponed. Partly because the ICs are mainly occupied by corona patients with a non-Western background. They end up in hospital more often because they do not speak the language and do not follow the rules, says Wilders.
So treatments and operations of Henk and Ingrid with cancer, heart failure or other illnesses are being postponed again because the ICs are mainly occupied by Mohammed and Fatima who do not speak our language and do not respect the rules? Are those the facts @MinPres Rutte?#corona

According to fellow MPs Wilders puts people together in the same category and measures specific groups of people. This while he himself has said regularly in the past that he does not support the measures. “You are the problem,” said SP leader Lilian Marijnissen.
‘State the facts’
The PVV leader in turn accused the House of closing its eyes and not wanting to mention the facts. He based his tweet on statements by an IC doctor that many people of non-Western descent are in intensive care.
A poll shows that a large part of the PVV voters do not comply with the rules. Still, Wilders was not tempted by PvdA leader Lodewijk Asscher to call on his supporters to follow up the measures more closely. “Everyone has to stick to the rules,” said Wilders. He would like the cabinet to put more emphasis on the importance of good ventilation.
