12 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – The trend is not only dramatic but also terrifying.
12 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – During the past few days there has been an exponential rise in the number of new infections recorded in Belgium. An average of 3,749 people per day tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 over the past week, with a peak on Wednesday of over 6,000 positive tests, a number never reached before in Belgium in a single day. Over the past two weeks, 349.2 infections were confirmed per 100,000 inhabitants! This makes Belgium the second-worst performer in Europe after the Czech Republic (432). As a reference, the Netherlands has 344 infections per 100,000 inhabitants. As a consequence, the hospitals are beginning to buckle under the double strain of rising corona figures at the same time as they aredealing with patients whose treatments had to be postponed at the outset of the epidemic. Both the government and healthcare experts are afraid that if we cannot flatten the curve in the week(s) to come our healthcare system will not hold and, therefore, they don’t rule out a second lockdown. The apocalyptic sky of today’s picture matches well the dramatic and terrifying situation we are confronted with.

"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
