5 November 2020: The Corona Express is reducing speed in Belgium and that is not coming a day too soon…
5 November 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – The number of new infections is stabilising and the increase in the number of hospitalisations is slowing down. That isn’t coming a day too soon: 1,351 patients are currently receiving critical care. That number is expected to rise further and will most likely reach a peak in two weeks’ time. Yesterday, the University Hospital in Ghent was already sounding the alarm. The hospital currently has 52 Covid patients in critical care and says that it won’t be able to accept any more critical care patients by the end of the weekend. Clearly, we did not yet leave the danger zone and it doesn’t look like the crisis will get any better soon. Belgium’s Prime Minister warned yesterday that strict measures will have to remain in force until there is a vaccine in early summer. Meanwhile, the US recorded over 100,000 new coronavirus cases in a single day for the first time since the pandemic began. The US is facing multiple challenges – a monthlong pandemic, economic devastation and a polarized society. Add on top the current political turmoil and you have a combustible situation. If President Trump loses his bid for re-election, as it increasingly starts to look like, he will not go quietly away. I’m wondering what the future will bring. Right now, we’re all looking at the world through a haze… – San Francisco, CA, USA
