The number of infections with the corona virus in our country and the number of hospital admissions are once again on the rise. This is evident from the most recent figures from the health institute Sciensano. Is there a chance that we will soon have to wear a mouth mask again? According to Virologist Steven Van Gucht, that chance is small: “Governments do not like to impose obligations and we do not have an epidemiological necessity either”. Nevertheless, wearing a mouth mask is a “good winter habit”, says Van Gucht.
