Death toll in Belgium

The first deaths due to the coronavirus in Belgium occurred on the 11th of March.

The virus is known to be especially dangerous for elderly people. In 2019, although most of the population was aged between 18 and 64, roughly 2.1 million Belgians were aged 65 or older. During this period, over 1.3 million elderly people notably lived in Flanders. Yet again, due to the population difference, Flanders did not have an older population than Wallonia.
