CORONAVIRUS – REPORT

From Sunday, indoor masks are obligatory from the age of 6, and not from the age of 12, as before. Indoor events with over 4,000 participants are also forbidden. From Monday, the maximum number of people will be reduced to 200, and over 50 people will be required covid certificates.

Primary schools and kindergartens will close on December 18, which means Christmas holidays will start earlier and will last 3 weeks. High schools will switch to hybrid mode from Monday and half of the lessons will be remote.

Opponents of the introduced restrictions took to the streets on Sunday in Brussels. Several thousand people demonstrated peacefully, but there were also violent clashes with a group of protesters. Firecrackers and stones flew towards the officers, and the police responded with tear gas and water cannons.

Experts dissatisfied

According to the latest data in Belgium, an average of around 18,000 infections per day and around 50 deaths have recently been confirmed. “The virus is spreading too fast, we need to limit its transmission,” said Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, announcing additional restrictions.

“Decisions taken too late and insufficient,” commented experts who advise the Belgian government on the pandemic. “When the engine overheats, you can’t continue to drive fast,” said virologist Yves Van Laethem. In his opinion, the authorities should have closed the schools now, and not wait two weeks.

Compulsory masks in primary schools? – this, in turn, according to expert Marc Van Ranst, should have been introduced a long time ago. Experts also recommended restrictions on gastronomy, but the authorities did not decide to do so.
