Belgian Prime Minister Sophie Wilmes on Monday announced new measures to try to curb coronavirus as the country grapples with a "worrying" upsurge in cases.

From Wednesday, Belgians will be allowed to see a maximum of five people outside their families, reducing the permitted "social bubble" from 15, and working from home will be "strongly recommended" by the government.
