Two-thirds of Dutch want others fined for coronavirus violations
Over two thirds of Netherlands residents think that people should be fined for violating coronavirus rules, like not quarantining at home when they have Covid-19 or are waiting for their test results, according to a survey by Hart van Nederland among over 3,700 Dutch.
68 percent of respondents said people should be fined if they don't comply with home quarantine. 28 percent are against a fine.
About 48 percent of respondents think a fine of 1,000 euros would be appropriate for not quarantining. 38 percent called it too high. 6 percent called it too low.
If people have mandatory quarantine imposed on them, 38 percent of respondents think that enforcement officers should make surprise visits to their home to check they are really quarantining. 22 percent think that health service GGD should call to check whether people are at home.
30 percent don't want compliance with home quarantine checked at all, calling it an invasion of privacy.
