19 January 2021: Experts are calling on politicians to strongly discourage or even ban foreign travel.
19 January 2021: The 7-day rolling average for people testing positive for the virus stabilizes and the number of people being hospitalised with the virus continues to fall slowly but surely. The same is true of the number of people with the virus that are dying. On average during the week to 15 January 2,017 people a day tested positive for the coronavirus, that is down 1% on the week. Meanwhile, several outbreaks of the British mutation of the virus have been reported. In one case it has been confirmed that the source of the infection is people that had travelled during the Christmas holiday and not stuck to the rules concerning quarantine on their return. The result is that thousands are quarantined due to the negligence by a few. The question of how to keep out more contagious coronavirus variants of the virus is what is now preoccupying the country’s politicians. Waiting for the beneficial seasonal impact on the spread of the virus and the effect from groups immunity via people who have had the virus and via vaccinations I continue my corona walks. On display today is a pleasing urban alignment that I pictured alongside the river Scheldt – Ghent, Belgium.
