Belgian opening: the Prime Minister stood in front of the cameras and said that there are four scenarios between March and May


The four scenarios are as follows:

  • Scenario number 1 is based on the assumption that a third wave of epidemics can be expected, so that the measures in force remain in force.
  • The second is based on the assumption that from March 1, the government will ease restrictive measures, which carries the risk of a sudden surge in the number of people infected and in need of hospital treatment.
  • The third model outlines the possibility that the restrictive measures will be lifted by the Belgian leadership as of April 1, based on the fact that by the end of March, more people will be immune to the pathogen due to vaccinations.
  • The fourth option outlines that the restrictions would be lifted a month later, in May. “More people will be vaccinated in May, so the level of infection will also be absolutely manageable,” the Belgian prime minister said.

Summing up the press conference, De Croo said that

the government wants to outline multiple perspectives for citizens and communicate transparently about the government’s future steps in the fight against the epidemic.

In Belgium, earlier this month, the government eased some of the restrictions in place. There are still very strict provisions for entry into the country.

According to the Belgian public health authority on Monday, the number of new infections increased slightly, by no more than 4 percent compared to Friday’s data, while the number of hospital admissions and deaths in the epidemic decreased by 4 and 10 percent, respectively.

Over the weekend, an average of 2,000 people tested positive for the virus daily, 120 people were transported to health facilities, and 30 died of the disease caused by the epidemic.
