Even though they don't look polished but rather tired, they are doing exactly what we expect from them. Visiting the relevant institutions, showing their support to all different groups in society that are making things happen, that support us all. They tend to do the right thing in a crisis.
I guess Max is just worried. They have 3 kids in school. They have a lot of personnel with families. They have secretaries and many other ppl they meet on a daily basis who have families. Anyon could be infecting anyone. They might be worried about their elderly moms.
In general, the Dutch seem to be fairly even spirited about it. Then again,our semi-lockdown has just been extended from April6 to April 28. Some measures are until June 1st and most ppl expect all measures will be extended until then.
There is no fighting over toilet rolls, most ppl stick to social distancing rules, bars and restaurants and museums are closed and all gatherings over 2 ppl (unless family) are not allowed. All sports venues/clubs and 'contact'jobs (ie hairdressers, nail salons, sex workers) are closed.(of course the last onese can work from home).
Some sectors of the economy are hit very hard - they will receive compensation from the govt. Others find new ways to stay in business - all restaurants are allowed to organise take away or delivery; brewer Grolsch will deliver beer in local zip code areas. Online flower services have a huge amount of work, and many shops can stay open as long as customers keep distance and the number of customers remains small. Cashiers will have a transparent plastic wall mounted. In this way, small shops like dry cleaners, butchers, bakeries, flower shops, cobblers can remain open. A friend works in specialized packaging and they are producing huge volumes (very few of the manifold cardboard/coated boxes for flowers but plenty of others).
Ppl keep up morale with all kinds of online or non-contact activities, from virtual Friday afternoon work drinks to Zoom-birthday parties, sports clubs organise challenges and online training/activity programmes. The (local) govt is providing laptops and internetconnections for families that do not have these or where ppl have to share a device. Children of ppl with essential jobs, but also vulnerable children that are in unsafe situation (be it domestic violence, poverty etc) are also welcomed in school.
Even if there isn't rioting in the streets, we do have many ppl infected (we only test ppl that are sick, so the real number is higher) and a death toll of 1339, but they're only counting people who had been tested. People that succumb without any testing aren't counted, but all official statements keep stating this.
So far, our health system and our brave health workers are keeping together.
