To rein in the unrelenting spread of the coronavirus, a growing number of European nations have chosen to opt for a second lockdown.

Taking cues from its neighbors France and Germany, Belgium became the latest nation re-imposing a second lockdown.

The country's COVID-19 incidence, currently at more than 1,600 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, dwarfs all of its European peers.

Since Thursday midnight, France has been under a nationwide lockdown, and Germany will go into a partial one starting Monday.
