Bulgaria: COVID-19 in Belgium: Restaurants Close, Quarantine and Curfew

Belgium imposes stricter quarantine measures as of today. They will last about a month and a half and include the closure of stores that do not sell basic necessities. All bars, cafes and restaurants were already closed last week, and a night curfew is in force.

"Our only goal is to prevent health services from collapsing under the pressure, which is already enormous. To achieve this, it is clear that a long-term and collective effort will be needed. I realize that these are drastic and especially painful measures. But these are last-minute measures, "said Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croix.
