Tackling coronavirus in the Netherlands

The Dutch government’s approach to combating the spread of COVID-19 is aimed at effectively controlling the coronavirus and the pressure on the healthcare system, while minimizing the long-term impact of shutting down society.

The government is continually evaluating the latest scientific advice on controlling the spread of the virus and the pressure on the healthcare system. This advice forms the basis for loosening or tightening restrictions on interaction. Like many other European countries the Netherlands has put in place severe measures resulting in empty streets.
