School closed in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic, Wales, Ireland, a German ski resort and three Portuguese municipalities have moved into a reconfinement reminiscent of that of spring.

Only essential trips for shopping, work or sometimes school are allowed.

The Czech Republic has even closed its primary and secondary schools for several weeks.

Others prefer to bet on the complete closure of bars and restaurants with, sometimes, an additional curfew, as in Wallonia where contamination is reaching a record level.

The curfew has just been tightened, starting at 10 p.m. since Saturday.

The authorities speak of a situation "much worse" than in the spring and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Sophie Wilmès is in intensive care.

On Friday, the European Disease Control Agency estimated that the situation in 23 EU countries was now very serious.
