10 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – After contact tracing, now comes source tracing
10 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic –The Corona figures show a further big rise in the number of people testing positive for the virus: on average 2,916 people tested positive every day over the last 7 days period. The total number of COVID-19 patients in Belgian hospitals is 1,110, while the steady rise in the number of deaths from COVID-19 continues. By now we are all familiar with the concept of contact tracing: if a person tests positive for the virus, the track and trace services track down the people he or she has been in contact with and advise them to get tested themselves. Although the system is still suffering teething problemsadvances have been made with the availability of the Coronalert smartphone app, which is now being used by more that half a million people in Belgium. In addition to contact tracing the Belgian government is now also starting to look into source tracing. As the name suggests, source tracing is about finding out who may have caused the infection. Preliminary results show that families and friends are the most important source of infections. Hence, keeping your social bubble as small as possible is key. Today’s picture is from another landmark downtown the historical city center of Ghent: The Castle of The Counts – Ghent, Belgium.
