Today, the Netherlands has been watching the press conferences of outgoing Prime Minister Rota and outgoing Minister De Jong of Public Health for exactly a year.

The Philadelphia Healthcare Corporation manufactures it Hello home page, Which can be followed live on YouTube and Twitch. Presenters Gea Zandink and Sebastiaan Verweij, who have an intellectual disability, will answer all questions to make the measures as understandable as possible to everyone.
The live broadcast starts right after last night’s press conference. Sebastian asks, “What do you think of that, Jia?” Jia replies, “It stays the same, right?” “I know that more people are allowed into the stores.”
Zandink and Verweij go through all the topics and pose questions to each other out loud: from the maximum number of people in stores to the question of whether or not you should get vaccinated. “If they can pass it on to each other, customers can understand it,” de Vries says. “They are such a candidate.”
