His ministry announced earlier today that he would be working from home for the next few days because he needed his rest. Later, doctors advised him to step down from his post.
Since Bruins (VVD) has to rest for a few weeks. He decided to step down ‘in the national interest’ because the corona crisis requires full commitment.
