4 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – New daily record high number of infections in the Benelux
4 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – The latest figures on the coronavirus pandemic in Belgium show a further rise in the 7-day rolling average of people testing positive for SAR-CoV-2. During the latest 7-day period an average of 1,759 people tested positive for coronavirus each day. Last Tuesday a record 2,778 people tested positive for the novel coronavirus. This is the highest number of new infections ever recorded since the first cases of the virus were recorded here 7 months ago. Also, in The Netherlands the situation is deteriorating. Nearly four thousand people tested positive yesterday. With the number of confirmed infections, hospitalisations and deaths from COVID-19 all rising experts are expressing their unease at the current situation. Needless to say, that the rise in the number of coronavirus cases put puts pressure on those working in first line medical care and in the hospitals and that other forms of medical care are coming under threat. You don’t need to be a genius to understand that governments need to have a good think about possible new measures. Last Friday, we were looking for wisdom in the Solvay Library in Brussels. The historical art building dates from 1902 and resonates with brilliant minds. Einstein, Bohr and other Nobel Prize scientists gathered for the famous Solvay Conferences – Leopold Park, Brussels, Belgium.
