Belgium reported on Friday 160 new COVID-19 infections, bringing the total number of infected people to 559, the Federal Public Service Health announced here at a press conference. The National Security Council (NSC) of Belgium, the crisis management body of COVID-19, had decided on Thursday evening to suspend classes in schools, to close cafes, bars, restaurants, and ban all sports, cultural and folklore activities. These measures are aimed at limiting social contacts as much as possible in order to avoid the spread of the epidemic. They will enter into force on March 14 and will have effect until April 3.
