The next meeting of Belgium's consultative committee will take place on Wednesday at 9:00 AM, according to reports in local media.

The meeting - expected for Friday - was ultimately brought forward due to rising infections and hospitalisations in Belgium, according to De Morgen, citing a government source.

Over the past days several experts have been urging the government to impose further restrictions, including the mention of the so-called Plan C, which involves the closure of schools on top of measures already in Belgium's Plan B.

The committee meeting will be followed by a press conference to announce what has been decided, De Croo’s cabinet confirmed to The Brussels Times. The agenda for the meeting remains unknown at this time.
