4 March 2021: In the week to 28 February on average 2386 people tested positive each day. This figure is up 7% on the week. What is worse is that we continue to see a sharp rise in hospitalizations. On average in the week to 2 March 152 patients with Covid were hospitalised each day. The figure is up 21% on the week. Even though Belgium’s coronavirus figures have not improved compared to last week, politicians and experts are in favour of allowing people to meet in larger groups when outdoors.The rationale is that they want to give people a bit of extra hope, so they can keep following the other measures. I’m wondering what the government will decide next Friday when they meet again. Meanwhile, Ghent is treating students to one hundred chalk circles on the St Peter’s Square. The circles should allow students to enjoy the spring sunshine safely and stick to the corona measure that restricts gatherings to only four people outdoors. Each has a diameter of six metres and can accommodate four individuals. Circles too socially distance with four metres in between – Ghent, Belgium.
