Belgium this week recorded the highest single-day coronavirus cases in five months, public broadcaster RTBF reported on Thursday.
The 11-million country has been experiencing a rise in COVID-19 infections, the outlet said, citing the latest data published by the research center Sciensano.
On a seven-day average, 2,114 new cases were registered this week, which is 12% more than the last week's average of 1,900 daily cases.
On Monday, a record number of 3,872 coronavirus cases were detected, which is the highest number since May 3.
The rise in cases is particularly high, exceeding 40% compared to a week before in the region of Flanders.
Approximately 44,500 people are tested for COVID-19 every day in Belgium.
Currently, 779 people are treated in hospitals because of the virus, but it is feared to rise soon following the surge in infections.
