BY AGENCY REPORT

Sadly, a  family in Belgium has lost a twelve-year-old girl who was among the 700 tested positive of the deadly coronavirus.

Belgian authorities said she was by far the youngest person among the more than 700 victims in the country.

Announcing the news Tuesday, national crisis-centre coronavirus spokesman Emmanuel Andre said it is “an emotionally difficult moment because it involves a child, and it has also upset the medical and scientific community.”

“We are thinking of her family and friends. It is an event that is very rare, but one which upsets us greatly,” Andre said. No details about the girl were provided.

He said that 98 people had died from the disease over the last 24 hours, bringing the total toll to 705 in a country of around 11.5 million people. More than 12,705 cases have been confirmed in total so far.

Andre said that Belgian authorities expect the spread of the disease to reach its peak in coming days, and that “we will arrive at a point where we’re close to saturation point at our hospitals.”
