Dutch health minister, Bruno Bruins on Wednesday collapsed in the parliament because of ‘fatigue from intense weeks’ of working against the coronavirus pandemic spreading around the world.
The 56-year-old was taking questions about the coronavirus crisis when he fell behind the lectern and was quickly helped up by fellow ministers before he took a sip of water.
‘I was feeling faint from fatigue and intense weeks. I am feeling better now. I am going home now to rest this evening so I can return tomorrow to fight the corona crisis,’ he said in a message on social media.
