14 February 2021: For the second day in a row the average number of people testing positive for coronavirus per day has dropped under 2,000. In the week to 10 February on average 1949 people tested positive each day in Belgium. The figure is down 16% on the week. During the same period on average 126 people were hospitalized with Covid-19. Yesterday it was announced that 94 vaccination centres in Belgium will be operational from next week. Nursing staff will first be a priority, then from March, it will be the turn of the general population, starting with those over 65 and patients at risk. We will be invited to be vaccinated in three different ways: by letter, e-mail and a text message. Let’s hope that the supply of vaccine will not stand in the way of this positive news. Also in the news was that Researchers at Oxford University are beginning a series of tests that should determine whether their vaccine against the Coronavirus, can also work on children. The vaccine will be administered on over 300 volunteers aged 6 to 17 years. The first tests will begin this month. Last, today is the last day that we will be treated to polar air that travelled all the way from Moscow. Bye-bye brass-monkey weather. On display, people enjoying a frozen controlled overflow area just outside Ghent – De Pinte, Belgium.
