6 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic - We are seeing an acceleration in the number of infections across Europe
6 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – 10 European countries are now colouring red on European coronavirus map, meaning they crossed the threshold of 120 confirmed infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the last two weeks (Spain 319 the Czech Republic 303, France 245, the Netherlands 231, Belgium 206, Luxembourg 161, Iceland 158, Hungary 129, Denmark 128 and the UK 135). In Belgium, the daily average of new cases has reached 2,100 over the past week with 3,000 people testing positive on some days. What is worse, is that more and more corona patients are ending up in hospital resulting in hospitals, slowly but surely, reaching their full capacity and elective surgery being postponed. Clearly, too many people have resumed normal life because they don’t think it will get that bad. They don’t believe the epidemic will affect them and they have been downplaying the threat in recent weeks. It goes without saying that tweets like “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life!” from President Trump don’t help to drive awareness of the severeness of the virus and the need for compliance to all measures to contain the pandemic. For me it means that I’m working from home again, staying connected with business by an endless string of Zoom, Teams and BlueJeans meetings. I also restarted my daily corona walks capturing the beauty of my hometown – Emile Braunplein, Ghent, Belgium.
WELCOME TO MY PHOTOGRAPHY BLOG AND PORTFOLIO. MY GOAL IS TO DOCUMENT THE WORLD AROUND ME, FROM THE SMALL DETAILS OF EVERYDAY LIFE TO THE GRAND LANDSCAPES THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY. WHETHER I'M AT HOME OR TRAVELING TO NEW PLACES, I AM ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR NEW AND INTERESTING SUBJECTS TO PHOTOGRAPH. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE A VISUAL DIARY OF MY EXPERIENCES AND A WAY TO SHARE THE WORLD AS I SEE IT WITH OTHERS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY EXPLORING MY COLLECTION AND DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF THE WORLD THROUGH MY LENS.
