In terms of age groups, the majority of coronavirus infections in Belgium between 29 August and 11 September were diagnosed in people in their twenties, figures by the Sciensano public health institute show.

For men between the ages of 20 and 29, there were about 120 confirmed cases per 100 000 inhabitants, and for women there were as many as 140 confirmed cases.

That puts both men and women in their twenties ahead in terms of the number of infections.
