“Touching the economy will cause a bloodbath,” the Neutral Union for Independents (SNI) said on Thursday in a statement on the eve of a new consultation committee scheduled for Friday to consider new measures to stem the spread of coronavirus . “Come up with a solid plan to tackle the real hotbeds of contamination and to convince the unvaccinated that we will not be participating in a new round of panic football measures. Do not put the heads of our independents under water again! », Adds the SNI.
For the union, “the independents have already paid a high enough price without it being proven that the closure of sectors has any effect on coronavirus infections”. “The government must finally take its responsibilities and convince by all means the reluctant to vaccination to be vaccinated,” he said.
The SNI recalls in its communication that December is the most important month of the year in terms of turnover. “Restricting it by re-introducing stricter measures would mean a new disaster,” he insists.
The Concertation Committee will take place this Friday at 8:00 am. This will look at the health situation, while Covid-19 contamination reached a record figure in Belgium on Monday since the start of the pandemic with 23,621 cases.
