Rutte apologizes for miscalculation of corona relaxation

Outgoing Prime Minister Rutte acknowledges that the cabinet made an error of judgment with the rapid relaxation at the end of June. “What we thought was possible, was not possible.” He apologizes for that.

Rutte also apologizes for the “bad press conference” last Friday. “You asked for our reflection,” he told a number of journalists. “And it was unfair that we didn’t give it.”

Rutte and Minister De Jonge on Friday dismissed the criticism that the cabinet relaxed too quickly and too drastically in June. They maintained that with the knowledge of the time, the advice of the OMT and RIVM and the low infection rates at the time, the choices were justified.
