“We have been hoodwinked by the delta variant:" Belgian prime minister.
Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo had to reinforce measures for the second time in a week and closed night clubs, while bars and restaurants have to close at 11 p.m. for the next three weeks.
Spikes in cases and hospital admissions exceeded even the worst medical predictions, forcing Belgium into quick action.
“We have been hoodwinked by the delta variant,” he said of the very contagious version of COVID-19.
He said that there were over 25,000 cases a day now in the country of 11 million. “This is unprecedented in our country.”
