Around the world, the Covid-19 turns life habits upside down. From Brussels (Belgium), the correspondent Valéry Lerouge testifies to these upheavals. “I have never seen the European quarter like this, totally deserted, abnormally silent, whereas usually, more than 100,000 people swarm there every day.” As in France, outings are limited to what is strictly necessary, “No need for a derogatory displacement certificate here”, underlines the correspondent of Franceinfo.
However, beware of foreigners who come without valid reason. “The police turned away 3,700 cars in ten days and seized some in Brussels”, says Valéry Lerouge. Supermarkets are also disrupted by this health crisis. “Having been in the fortnight, I had to settle for home delivery. Problem: in Brussels, you have to wait eight days to have a niche ”, deplores the correspondent Frédéric Furnermont. “An application has managed to fare well: it puts us in touch with young people who do the shopping for us and we are delivered in four hours with an electric cargo bike”.
