13 June, 2020 - Update on the Corona Crisis from Ghent - The virus’ reproduction number in Belgium currently stands at 0.87. This means that anyone with the novel coronavirus infects an average of 0.87 people. All trends look favourable and for the first time since mid-March, fewer than 500 people are in hospital, and fewer than 100 on the intensive care. Van Gucht, one of Belgians leading virologists, said: “We are now sailing into calmer waters and we can release the reins a little bit. Although we entered a new phase of the exit plan social distancing remains key to stemming the transmission of COVID-19”. Today’s pictures were taken long before we were confronted with the one-and-a-half-meter society. The picture is a vignette of the funeral of Flemish singer, Luc De Vos, who died suddenly in December 2014 at the age of 52. I’m wondering how we would have paid our last honors to Luc De Vos in today’s environment – Sint-Pietersplein, Ghent, Belgium
