People take part in a protest against European anti-coronavirus measures, in Brussels, Belgium, 23 January 2022.

Tens of thousands of people were expected to a protest against the way the EU governments imposed ‘disproportionate measures that violate human rights’, as organiser ‘Europeans United’ puts it, to curb the Omicron variant wave of the Sars-Cov-2 coronavirus.

The Belgian government on 21 January announced it will introduce a three-tier system dubbed ‘barometer’ with corresponding measures for the culture, events, and hospitality industries in the light of countries around the globe fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
