20 May 2021: Yesterday it was announced that travelling within the EU should be possible this summer, but you will need the so-called the 'Digital Green Certificate', a document that proves you either have developed antibodies against coronavirus, received at least one dose of a corona vaccine or tested negative in a recent PCR test. Also, the member states supported a proposal by the Commission to relax entry restrictions for travellers from non-EU countries who are fully vaccinated with a Covid-19 vaccine authorised in the EU. Travel outside Europe will depend on individual countries, but a vaccination passport is bound to play a role there as well. Net-net, whilst all corona parameters are improving, we’re slowly returning the pre-corona way of living. The total number of COVID-19 patients in our country’s hospitals stands at 1,765. Of these 596 are on intensive care wards. During the week from 10 to 16 May an average of 2,087 people tested positive for coronavirus each day, a further fall of 30% on the previous week. The R-value or reproduction figure is now at 0.86, which means the epidemic continues to shrink. Meanwhile, Ghent is preparing to welcome tourists – Ghent, Belgium.
WELCOME TO MY PHOTOGRAPHY BLOG AND PORTFOLIO. MY GOAL IS TO DOCUMENT THE WORLD AROUND ME, FROM THE SMALL DETAILS OF EVERYDAY LIFE TO THE GRAND LANDSCAPES THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY. WHETHER I'M AT HOME OR TRAVELING TO NEW PLACES, I AM ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR NEW AND INTERESTING SUBJECTS TO PHOTOGRAPH. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE A VISUAL DIARY OF MY EXPERIENCES AND A WAY TO SHARE THE WORLD AS I SEE IT WITH OTHERS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY EXPLORING MY COLLECTION AND DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF THE WORLD THROUGH MY LENS.
