Majority of the Netherlands in favor of a general lockdown


Now that the infections in our country are increasing, there is a chance that stricter measures will be introduced. A small majority of the Dutch want that too. They think the country should quickly go into a complete lockdown for a few weeks.

56 percent of the inhabitants see this as the best solution to counteract the rising corona numbers. This is evident from an investigation by Heart of the Netherlands among more than 2500 people.

Too early to see any effect

Today it was announced that for the first time more than 10,000 infections were added within 24 hours. It concerns 10,007 infections compared to 9281 yesterday.

It seems as if the partial lockdown, which will apply from October 14, is still having little effect. But Prime Minister Rutte says it is still too early to see whether the measures have made sense. “You can only see that in a few days,” said the prime minister during his weekly press conference Friday afternoon.

Almost a third of the population agrees with the prime minister. They, 31 percent, would rather wait a few more days to see what effect the measures have. The cabinet must then make a decision on that basis. 12 percent of the respondents want to scale down the corona measures.

The vast majority of the participants in the survey believe that the cabinet was too late to introduce new measures. According to 73 percent it should have been faster. However, 22 percent of the population supports the cabinet.
