21 November 2020: Despite the light at the end of the tunnel let’s continue our efforts even if they hurt.
21 November 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – The number of COVID-19 patients in intensive care has fallen below the level of the peak during the first wave. Also, the number of deaths, patients hospitalised and new infections are further decreasing albeit at a slower pace. Just as we have passed the peak of the second wave in Belgium there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel. The first vaccines to protect us from the virus will be available soon, probably at the start of next year. In light of this positive news virologists expressed their concern about what might happen if the current rules in place to curb the further spread of the virus are relaxed for the festive season or if large numbers of people flout the coronavirus rules over Xmas and the New Year. A study has found a significant number of us don’t plan to stick to the rules limiting social contacts during the forthcoming Xmas and New Year celebrations. Let’s hope that we’re not confronted with a third wave before things get better. So please, let’s continue our efforts, even if they hurt. On display today is one of the roads into Ghent early morning. This is a very different view from what we saw during the first lockdown earlier this year – Ghent, Belgium.
