On Wednesday evening, the corona situation in Twente was further tightened to ‘very serious’. “We see an explosive increase in the number of infections in the security region,” says Arjen Gerritsen. According to both the GGD Twente and the Safety Region of Twente, the figures will increase even further in the coming days, due to a delay in the corona dashboard where all figures are kept.
“We would fool the people of Twente, fool them, if we were to say that everything will be different again in two weeks,” says Gerritsen. “The experts tell us that it really will not change in two weeks. In fact, that it will only get worse.”
Depending on the cabinet
The cabinet imposed a ‘partial lockdown’ last week. The Twente Safety Region is therefore dependent on ‘The Hague’ for any tightening up of the corona measures in Twente. “But we do argue in the weekly safety meeting for stricter measures. And we are not the only safety region,” says Gerritsen.
It has already been five to twelve, according to the security region. “If we together want to prevent the hospitals from filling up, that we have to close nursing homes, that we can no longer visit our family, then we really have to take steps. In the eyes of the safety region, we will go there with the current strictness. “the measures do not come.”
Gerritsen explains why he wants a total lockdown:
‘Quiet December month’
Gerritsen speaks of gloomy prospects. “This morning we took a look ahead at the festive month of December. That could be a very quiet month. That is terrible, everyone is disappointed, I do that too, but that could be very necessary.”
The deputy chairman of the security region is surprised that it is ‘still so busy on the road’. “We see that a lot of things are still possible, that social and economic life is still very mobile. That is not good. That actually means that it is inevitable to get into a total lockdown from Twente.”
