We bring you up to date with the latest news on how the Dutch are dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. Find out how the government is planning to ramp up the number of intensive care beds, how an ambulance got held up for 20 minutes in Belgium and why finance minister Wopke Hoekstra had to eat a large slice of humble pie. The competition for ‘most awkward body-swerve of the year’ award has two strong entries this week from Mark Rutte and Hugo de Jonge. And art thieves spoiled Van Gogh’s birthday by helping themselves to one of his paintings during the corona shutdown.
