10,000 deaths from corona in Belgium: who are all those people? And why are the numbers much lower now?


Right from the start of the epidemic, it has been shown that the coronavirus can cause serious complications, especially in people from the age of 65. And that is also reflected in the mortality figures.

More than half of all deaths are over 85 years old. 95 percent is over 65. During the first wave, 2 in 3 deaths involved a resident of a residential care center.

But also people with underlying conditions are more at risk. This concerns chronic conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, lung disease or a weakened immune system.
