“There is currently a starting, but still very limited circulation of the Covid-19 virus among the Belgian population,” the FPS Public Health said. “As travellers from northern Italy returned to almost all the municipalities in Belgium after their holidays, this local circulation is originating from different places throughout the territory,” they added.
On Sunday, the FPS said that fewer samples are sent in for tests over the weekend, which could explain the small increase.
Update: The number of patients confirmed with the coronavirus (Covid-19) in Belgium is 267, as of Tuesday 10 March. Read more about it here.
