11 May 2021: Experts are worried that Belgium’s authorities will be easing the coronavirus restrictions too soon…
The latest figures on the coronavirus pandemic in Belgium show a continuation in the downward trend. However, the pace of the fall in the number of people testing positive for the virus is slowing. Between 1 May and 7 May, an average of 2,936 new coronavirus infections were detected per day, the figures is down by 3% compared to the previous week. There are 700 patients being treated in intensive care for Covid-19 and a total of 2,175 people hospitalised with a coronavirus infection. The positivity rate stand at 6.6% and the reproduction number is 0.89. On 8 May 38.4% of the adult population had received at least one shot of the vaccine. Whilst the corona figures are still very high, and the Indian variant is probably more prevalent than we currently report, politicians keep focusing on easing the corona restrictions. As so many people have tried hard not to get infected or infect others by following the rules over the past year, it would be a shame to release the measures too early. It would be a pity to be infected when your vaccine is waiting… Meanwhile, in Ghent people are enjoying the reopening of the outdoor hospitality – Ghent, Belgium
