The Belgian government has decided to give its entire population iodine pills in case of a major emergency at one of its nuclear reactors.
Now, the government had already issued the pills to people living within 12 miles of the nuclear power plants.
But the health minister was quoted by Belgian media Thursday as telling parliament the range has been widened to 62 miles, which would cover the entire country.
