The pills must only be taken, however, when an instruction is issued by the federal home affairs ministry, the pharmacists’ union advised. Home affairs minister Jan Jambon promised parliament that warnings would be issued in plenty of time; the pills take three hours to begin having a protective effect.

Among those making use of the offer were 183,178 individuals and 2,851 schools and companies. The free pills are being advertised by 973,400 brochures distributed in pharmacies, social media and information sessions.
