12 December 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – In a lot of European countries infections are on the rise. Countries such as France and Germany have already announced stricter measures to try and curb the spread of the virus. In Belgium the fall in the figures relating to the coronavirus pandemic came to a near standstill. One can only guess what the primary reason is for this worrying situation. For quite a time we didn’t test people without symptoms that had had a high-risk contact. This provided opportunities for networks to form that went under the radar and are only emerging now. However, this cannot be the only reason. The reopening of the shops at the start of the month and the reopening of schools after the extended half-term break can also have had an impact on the figures. Children being at school, means that their parents can move about more easily and can for example go into to the office. This combined with the reopening of the shops means that people are more mobile and in turn this can lead to an increase in the number of infections. Let’s stick to the rules, continue to drive compliance and hope that the fall will continue once again. The better everyone respects the measures to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus, the sooner they can be relaxed. Today’s picture is a vignette of one of my corona walks earlier this month. It’s not one of my typical postcard pictures but I guess occasionally we are all drawn to imperfection and fascinated by it – Ghent, Belgium.
