5 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic - we still have a long way to go before life will go back to the way it was
5 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – The number of people testing positive for the novel coronavirus continues to rise in Belgium. This is also the case with regard to hospitalisations and the number of people dying after having contracted the virus. Almost 2,000 new people per day tested positive for the virus in Belgium over the past week, with a peak of over 3,000 new cases on the same day last Wednesday. As a result, general practitioners are becoming overwhelmed, and hospitals are slowly filling. Beds that were destined for people who had to undergo surgery are being assigned for coronavirus patients again. The University Hospital in Brussels is already transferring patients to hospitals outside the region. The trend doesn’t look good. I understand that many of us are experiencing ‘coronavirus fatigue’ and that we get the same message every time but clearly, we all need to be more careful and limit our close contacts to a strict minimum, wash our hands regularly, respect the social distancing rules and continue to wear masks in places where social distancing is not possible. Although a vaccine against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 seems to be on the horizon we still have a long way to go before life will go back to the way it was. Hang in there! – Damme, Belgium.
