The experts grouped within the “risk management group” will report on the situation and make new recommendations. It will be up to political leaders to make decisions and agree on their implementation.
The National Security Council (CNS) started a new meeting on Tuesday around 4:00 p.m. The experts grouped within the “risk management group” will report on the situation and make recommendations. It will then be up to the political leaders to make the decisions and agree on their implementation.
The CNS brings together the Prime Minister, the vice-prime ministers, the ministers concerned and the minister-presidents, as well as representatives of the security and public health services.
Last Thursday, this body announced important restrictive measures affecting schools, non-essential businesses, the catering industry and recreational, sports, cultural activities, etc.
Other restrictive measures could be taken. So far, discretion is required even if, since the announcement of new measures in France, a much harder confinement is mentioned.
The Presidents recalled that decisions would be made on the basis of the experts’ recommendations.
“There is a request to strengthen the measures but we must discuss them. We need to find appropriate measures for the situation. We also need unity in the country, that is to say that the measures we take are the same in Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels, “said Walloon Minister-President Elio Di Rupo (PS).
