Brussels decided to close for one month cafes and bars as part of measures to combat the spread of coronavirus. This was announced on Wednesday, October 7, by the capital’s authorities after the meeting of the Security Council.
The restriction will take effect in the morning on Thursday. At the same time, restaurants are still allowed to continue working, writes portal 7sur7.
Earlier in October German authorities included Belgium into the list of countries with unfavorable epidemiological situation and recommended citizens to abstain from trips there.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said the day before that Europe is getting tired of coronavirus infection.
The spread of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes the disease COVID-19, began in late December last year. The focus of the infection was the Chinese city of Wuhan. In a few months, the disease has spread to more than 210 countries. On March 11, WHO declared a coronavirus pandemic.
