Of the positive corona tests in Belgium, five percent are currently returning from travelers. That said the virologist Steven Van Gucht at the press conference of the crisis center and Sciensano. Before the Christmas holidays, the proportion was less than one percent.
Overall, the virologists draw a relatively positive balance of the Christmas holidays. Apparently, many Belgians stayed home for the holidays. Steven Van Gucht said that you have to be prepared for the fact that the number of new infections could increase slightly again in the next few days.
