    Police seized a box of 35 surgical masks from a store in Deurne (Antwerp) on Saturday evening.  

    The owner was selling them at inflated prices. “He was asking for three euros a mask, which is just unacceptable in these times,” said local police spokesman Willem Migom. 

    Local police discovered the trafficking during a patrol. The masks were seized and the owner was handed a fine.
