7 November 2020: Whilst Belgium reached the peak of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic the US elections continue to drag on
7 November 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – There is some encouraging news from the Covid front. Belgium is seeing a slight fall in the number of infections and there are initial indications that the number of people being hospitalised is also falling. The number of patients in intensive care continues to rise, but the rate of increase is slowing. The lockdown efforts are starting to pay-off but the way down is still long and we are going to have to stick to the current regime for a long time before we enter safer waters. Meanwhile, the US set a daily record for new cases for the third straight day, with more than 129,000 new cases on Friday. Whilst Joe Biden is edging closer to victory many people in Europe wonder if he also will be able to govern and take the necessary actions to get the country back on track. At the moment, it seems likely that the Senate — which is wildly unrepresentative of the American people — will remain in the hands of the republicans who will undoubtfully sabotage Biden in every way it can. The skewed electoral system in the US means that Trump’s party will still be in a position to cripple the next president’s ability to deal with the huge epidemiological, economic and environmental problems the country face. To cheer me up I continue to capture scenes from my hometown – Reep, Ghent, Belgium
