Belgium Significantly Tightened Corona Measures

abtwerp1000x600

Infection numbers in Belgium are increasing strongly again and the government has announced stricter contact restrictions to prevent another lockdown.

As of Wednesday, the Belgians may only meet a maximum of five people privately with whom they do not live together, Prime Minister Sophie Wilmès said yesterday. Until now, private meetings with up to 15 people were allowed.

In addition, a night curfew was imposed in Antwerp and residents may no longer leave their houses and apartments between 23:30 and 06:00. All bars and restaurants in the port city have to close at 11 p.m. Contact sports are prohibited and all team sports for adults. Home office for companies in Antwerp is mandatory if the employer allows it.

In the rest of the country, public events in closed rooms are limited to 100 people and if you want to go shopping, you have to do it alone and only within a 30 minutes time-frame.

Wilmès was “very concerned” about the recent increase in infection rates. According to their information, the new rules will initially apply for four weeks and aim to prevent national curfews within Belgium.

According to the authorities, an average of 279 Belgians were infected per day last week, compared to 163 per day the previous week. As of Monday, more than 66,000 corona cases and 9,821 deaths were recorded in Belgium.
