26 September 2020: Update on the Corona Pandemic – Belgian Universities Displeased With The Government
26 September 2020: Whilst Storm Odette is sweeping across the country - at the coast, gusts of wind up to 110 km/hour are causing damage and nuisance on a larger scale – Belgian virologists are creating their own storm. They decided to go on a “silent strike” against the relaxed rules the government announced earlier this week. They will not give interviews until at least Monday, and instead refer to the politicians for additional explanations. They argue that as the figures continue to go up it is certainly not the time to loosen the rulesand that politicians now should be held accountable to explain their decision in the media. Also, all universities expressed their displeasure with the government’s decision to loosen the measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus. The struggle of science versus politics is no brand news. On display is a mural of the internationally praised street artist ROA on the façade of the Ghent University Museum. The brand-new science museum acts as a canvas for a magnificent pile of skeletons, including that of an elephant, a rhinoceros, a grizzly bear and an okapi. Net-net, a mural that is as confusing as the many opinions that are out there on how to contain the Coronavirus pandemic. – Campus Ledeganck, University of Ghent, Belgium.
