20 November 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – Belgium has now officially dropped out of the top ten list of the European list of countries with the highest number of Covid-19 infections per inhabitants. After beingat the top of the list for several days at the end of October, then falling to sixth, Belgium is now in 14th place, according to the most recent data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).However, the number of patients in our hospitals is still very high and higher than in most other countries. Our hospitals have been and still are under heavy pressure, but the good news is that everybody is getting proper treatment and that we haven’t seen scenes like other countries with patients being treated in corridors or on parking places. Due to our complex state structure with eight health ministers many things have been going wrong during this pandemic but as a minimum we got this right. So, big kudos to all healthcare professionals who have been going the extra mile since February to cope with this unprecedented health crisis. On display is the University Hospital in Ghent. On the façade neon lights display “Blijven Vechten” - freely translated in English “Keep on Fighting” or using the words of Bob Marley “Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!”. Thank you! Ghent, Belgium.
