Mayor De Coninck (Flemish nationalist) expressed surprise that nearly two years into the pandemic some people still didn’t know the rules.
“The proprietor had injured himself in his snack bar and called for an ambulance. That’s how it transpired he had come down with coronavirus. The police are handing their report on to the prosecutor. A fine may be on the cards”.
