10 November 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – The corona restrictions are beginning to pay off, with the number of hospitalisations dropping and the number of new infections going down strongly. Last week, 597 patients had to be taken to hospital each day on average, coming from 656 the week before. Yesterday's figure came in at 400, while 294 patients were allowed to return home again. The best news we’ve heard in a long time came from Pfizer announcing yesterday that an early analysis of its coronavirus vaccine trial suggested the vaccine was robustly effective in preventing Covid-19. A first analysis of the data found that the vaccine that they developed together with the German pharma company BioNTech was more than 90 percent effective in preventing the disease among trial volunteers. If the results hold up, that level of protection would put it on par with highly effective childhood vaccines for diseases such as measles. Other interesting reading was the outcome of a study of 186 coronavirus patients at a Belgian hospital revealing that a lack of sufficient vitamin D on admission can be linked to increased risk of severity and death from a Covid-19 infection. I knew that Vitamin D stimulates the absorption of calcium and magnesium but did not know that it strengthens and regulates the immune system. Fully loaded with vitamins and supplements I continue my search for eye-catching scenes in my hometown. On display today is the old post office on the Korenmarkt – Korenmarkt, Ghent, Belgium.
