Netherlands sees a spike in COVID-19 cases

The Netherlands now has one of the worst coronavirus infection rates in Europe, as case numbers and hospital admissions balloon.
After the first wave, authorities implemented a test and trace policy in an effort to contain new infections but due to recent explosive numbers contact tracing of infected people has become impossible.
Despite the rapidly rising numbers the government does not want to impose stricter measures as of yet but if infection rates continue to go up new measures might be announced soon.

    I’d take democracy and freedom over authoritarianism under literally any circumstance. Sugar-coating it as ‘strong leadership’ makes you disingenuous. Say that you support a draconian lockdown or don’t say anything. Make your position clear!!

    FROM THE CDC
    Here’s the data, this is from the CDC itself, if you are infected with the Coronavirus and you are between the ages of zero and 19, your safety recovery rate, do you know what it is? 99.997%. Everybody between the ages of zero and 19, if you have kids like I do who were young, they are all under drastically more danger from the seasonal flu than they are from the Coronavirus. If you are between the ages of 20 and 49 your Coronavirus recovery rate is 99.98%. If you are between the ages of 50 and 69 your Coronavirus recovery rate is 99.5%.
    “Think about that for a minute. Everybody under the age of 69 and below, which is the vast vast majority of the population in the United States, has a 99.5% or better recovery rate, if they actually get the coronavirus. And even if you are over 70 and you get it, you still have a 94.6% recovery rate.
