Manpower lacking in case of disaster

A report from the Health Service GGD shows that at most, several dozen people would be available to prepare the Netherlands for catastrophes and crises affecting national health.  This may relate to contagious diseases such as Ebola or Zika.  GGD Chairman Tonny Van de Vondervoort said that the same is true as far psychiatric help is concerned.  Minister Schippers (Public Health) admits the vulnerabilities in the GGD, and will ask the health inspectorate to look into it.
