"The situation is quite serious as the number is constantly growing. Quarantine has been announced, but it is allowed to train outside, to walk near the house, to go to the store, to the pharmacy."

Lida sadly mentions that people break quarantine regime, visit their relatives, so they do not keep social distance. But what is good that the government of Belgium really takes serious steps to help citizens financially, of course, if they have a corresponding contract.

To our question whether she has not want to return during this period, Lida responds that she has plans to return in June, but if the situation does not calm down, she may cancel as according to her the airport now is one of the most dangerous places, and she would definitely endanger many people.
