The Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) reported last week that there have not been so few bankruptcies in the month of February since 1990.  In the Netherlands 'only' 107 companies were declared bankrupt in February.

The low number of bankruptcies is largely explained by the given state support due to the coronavirus. Many companies are currently kept afloat by government support. After this support is withdrawn, the difference may be corrected.
