Map: number of corona infections is leveling off

More than 1,500 infections per day on average

Ten new deaths were registered on both Monday and Tuesday. The data from the last three days have not yet been included in the daily averages, with the result that in the most recent seven-day period with consolidated data, an average of four deaths is still recorded. In the previous seven-day period, that was three more deaths. This is evident from Wednesday’s press briefing from health institute Sciensano. With these new deaths, our country has passed the symbolic mark of 10,000 deaths.

In the meantime, the number of new infections continues to level off, for about ten days now. In the period from 13 to 19 September, there were on average 1,550.6 infections, an increase of 9 pc compared to the previous period. Spokesman Steven Van Gucht notes that the number of positive tests remains high, at 5.3 pc. “So there is still an intense circulation of the virus,” says van Gucht.

At the same time, Van Gucht did not fail to indicate that the figures in many other European countries are continuing to rise. “This delay is therefore not self-evident. So our efforts can make a difference.”

And in West Flanders?

You can see on the map below the most recent infection figures in our province. Since last week, Sciensano has been adding up the infections over a period of 14 days. The figures of 7 days were always used for this. That means that the figures are a lot higher anyway.

Below we use the same color code that is used to color countries in the EU: less than 20 infections per 100,000 inhabitants, we color green. Between 20 and 99 infections will turn orange and higher than 100 will be red or darker.
