Germany is in the grip of a “dramatic” fourth Covid wave. Belgium has announced a series of measures in an attempt to avoid a lockdown. Children in Belgium will have to wear masks from the age of 10, rather than the current age of 12. Working from home will become compulsory from Saturday for four days a week. Passes known as Covid Safe Tickets will be required in theatres, cinemas and museums. A third booster vaccination will be rolled out for all Belgians by the end of April 2022.
