The question of whether there will be more lockdowns, nationwide restrictions or limits on international travel still haunts everyone.
The European Union has seen nearly 141,000 confirmed virus-related deaths in the pandemic, and Europe as a whole, including Britain and Russia, has seen over 212,000, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.
Renowned chocolatier Dominique Persoone was lucky to survive on a big local fan base so he could do without the big cruise ship crowds that come and buy his chocolates from his shop by the cathedral.
“The hardest thing is that you don’t know what the future will bring. We don’t know how it’s gonna be in September, October, when the real chocolate season starts. Then it’s Halloween, Santa Claus, Christmas."
Now, winter and more uncertainty beckons.
“We thought we were safe and we had a wonderful life. And, now, this is happening," Persoone said.
