Meanwhile, in the Spanish autonomous community of the Basque Country, a ban on mass gatherings is being introduced; no more than 10 people can be together.
And in Belgium, the situation has improved slightly – over the past week, the rate of coronavirus infection in the country as a whole has decreased by 14%, but at the same time, Brussels is becoming a new focus.
Belgian children can return to school on September 1, while high school students will study remotely. Theology professor Lieven Bouvet says: “I am very pleased. Education is a priority in our society. We can organize the orderly return of students to school. We managed to find a balance between the arguments of virological control and pedagogical criteria.”
The World Health Organization says that herd immunity will not help fight COVID-19 and the world community needs to focus on finding additional measures that would limit the spread of coronavirus.
