A special commission will investigate how the Covid-19 epidemic was dealt with

Most traditional parties on both sides of the language divide voted in favour. The commission will consist of 17 members. Four experts will make a preliminary report this summer to set the framework for the commission’s tasks.

The commission will examine a large number of things:

  • how was the pandemic prepared and handled?
  • which information was at the government’s disposal after the early outbreak in China?
  • how were the strategic stocks of materials and medicines used?
  • the coordination of the various measures
  • the support of hospitals
  • the lockdown measures
  • the role of the National Crisis Centre
  • the non-medical aspects of the crisis
  • recommendations for the future

Earlier, a similar commission has been installed in the Flemish Parliament. This will focus on the Flemish approach of the health crisis, e.g. in the nursing homes, a Flemish responsibility.
