The Prime Minister spoke in Studio Brussel about the possible organization of major indoor events. In his words, the question should be on the table soon: “I think we should get started.” “If everyone is motivated to get vaccinated, then this stuff should be possible in the second half of the year. If you then go to an event without getting vaccinated, you do so at your own risk.” said Alexander De Croo.
The Premier’s statement follows the cancellation of Pukkelpop. Last week, the festival decided to cancel this year’s edition because it is virtually impossible to complete the tens of thousands of tests requested. “Multi-day festivals are more difficult, especially if you have a young audience. For example, many sixteen-year-olds have not yet been fully immunized,” De Croo concluded.
