Due to a significant increase in corona cases, the German Foreign Office warns against tourist travel to the Belgian region of Antwerp.
"Warnings are currently being issued against non-essential, tourist travel to the province of Antwerp due to renewed high levels of infection," the Foreign Office announced on its website.
Previously, the provincial government of Antwerp itself had already advised against travel to the region. There, the number of new Corona infections currently exceeds the mark of 50 cases per 100.000 inhabitants within seven days. Such regions have been declared risk areas by the Robert Koch Institute.
