Gommers became a well-known face in the Netherlands during the corona crisis. As chairman of the Dutch Association for Intensive Care (NVIC), he deals with the occupation in the Dutch ICs and is a prominent OMT member. Partly because of this, the doctor regularly joined talk shows, in which he started a conversation with Famke Louise after her infamous ‘I’m not participating anymore’ video.
The intensivist now has more time for himself. “I only had a meeting of the NVIC on Monday evening,” he says in the podcast Ask Gommers. ,,But all the other evenings I was free. That’s really an exception. I have never sat outside so much and watched the setting sun.”
Now that the corona figures are going so well, Gommers no longer has to put his head on TV. ,,No more talk shows, great! I hope I don’t get to see that anymore.” To prevent him from joining up, he called in help. “I asked my wife: ‘Make sure I don’t say yes to something again’. She thinks I say yes too easily, so I said: well, then you have to help me.”
