Belgium will probably soon introduce a “light lockdown” to fight against the fourth wave of the coronavirus epidemic, virologist Marc Van Ranst said on Wednesday in “VTM NIEUWS”.

Asked by viewers as the number of cases increases continuously in Belgium, the virologist recalled that the Delta variant is “incredibly contagious”. “And the situation is very critical in Flanders, I have no direct explanation to analyze it. Wallonia and Brussels have deconfined themselves more gradually, perhaps that is part of the explanation. “

Marc Van Ranst, however, does not think that the authorities will impose full confinement as in 2020. “We risk having lighter confinement, with for example an early closure of the hospitality industry. This could be on the table of the next Concertation Committee. It needs to be done quickly, maybe next week. “
