Whoโ€™s to blame for the fumbling of the corona crisis: the government or other Dutchies?

Dutch people are pointing the finger at their own countrymen for the outbreak of the corona crisis much more than residents in other European countries.ย 

A survey by the European Council of Foreign Relations (ECFR) found that 63% of Dutch people are blaming other negligent Dutchies for the poor Dutch response to the coronavirus crisis, RTL Nieuws reports.ย ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

In particular, they believe that the continued spread of the virus is due to people who didnโ€™t follow the coronavirus rules. They also blamed people who travelled or came from abroad during the pandemic. โœˆ๏ธ

What about the Dutch government?

So what about the Dutch government โ€” are they to blame for the pandemic? According to Dutchies, the answer is no. ๐Ÿ™…

(Cough, Dansen met Janssen, cough).

While other European countries like France, Spain, and Poland blamed their government for the pandemic, the survey shows that three-quarters of Dutch people have confidence in the cabinetโ€™s approach.ย
