No, Mark Rutte can be accused of intentional neglect by following the suggestion of his chosen scientists on "herd immunity". The RIVM is still not following WHO instructions to do the testing!
Minister President Mark Rutte of The Netherlands will be remembered in history, quite like Dutch PM Colijn during the military build-up in Germany and the outbreak of World War II ...

The Extraordinary Decisions Facing Italian Doctors | The Atlantic - March 11, 2020 |
Two weeks ago, Italy had 322 confirmed cases of the coronavirus. At that point, doctors in the country's hospitals could lavish significant attention on each stricken patient.
One week ago, Italy had 2,502 cases of the virus, which causes the disease known as COVID-19. At that point, doctors in the country's hospitals could still perform the most lifesaving functions by artificially ventilating patients who experienced acute breathing difficulties.
Today, Italy has 10,149 cases of the coronavirus. There are now simply too many patients for each one of them to receive adequate care. Doctors and nurses are unable to tend to everybody. They lack machines to ventilate all those gasping for air.
DREADFUL STATISTICS ITALY
Today's horrifying statistics ... not just numbers, but real persons, lives suddenly stopped short by lack of empathy and insight by people in power of the mightiest economies the planet has ever witnessed. A complete failure in leadership!! Trump, Johnson and PM Mark Rutte refusing to follow WHO guidelines on testing, testing, testing.
COBRA Watching the Charts : Experts
Unpreparedness on the scale we see in many nations, including the three I've focused on ... is just criminal. The data on the Wuhan Outbreak has been known since mid-January .. the political preoccupation had other priorities. Same old with George Bush and Dick Cheney in August 2001 - Hair On Fire warning from the intelligence community. US intelligence is like God: Knows All! National Security? Trump closed down the Pandemic Response Team inside the NSC.
Mark "Wonder Boy" Rutte was on a visit in the White House ... scourging for economic favours because of Brexit, building best relationships with U.S. President Donald Trump. What a shithole countries, "leading" the planet into oblivion.
○ MSC: Trump's Best Friend: Dutch PM Mark Rutte
Trump doesn't know shit or care about "World Health" also known as the WHO which has launched its guidance from the beginning of January. Boris Johnson and Mark Rutte have followed in the Master's footsteps ... deception and outright lying. By BoJo it's clear, Mark is a better presenter. He did go AWOL on Sunday March 15 and let the minister in his cabinet bring the bad news and backtracking from earlier statements. Rutte was all prepared for Sunday in spoke eloquently in his Address to the Nation
See the graphs in article, the individual elliptical rise indicates how the state tackled the virus ... or didn't!
