“The situation is constantly changing. We still haven’t got this virus under control. We are not out of the pandemic yet, we are still in the middle of a pandemic. But even in the middle of a pandemic, we’re not entirely sure. Quite frankly, we didn’t use the tools we have today to get close to the exit,” Van Kerkhove said.
