In the first virtual edition of the DutchNews podcast, this week we bring you all the latest news on the shutdown, with some audio issues as we get used to our new working conditions. How are families managing home schooling? What help is the government giving to people and businesses? Can you still go outside? And should we quarantine Hugo de Jonge’s shoes? We also look at the community initiatives that have sprung up to help people cope and the medical advances that might hold the key to controlling corona. And did we witness Mark Rutte’s Gettysburg moment during a visit to Albert Heijn?
