In our country, more than 10,000 people have died from the effects of the corona virus. In the meantime, the number of infections continues to rise, but still at a slower pace.
The corona virus has already killed 10,001 people in Belgium. This is evident from the preliminary figures from the health institute Sciensano on Wednesday morning. A total of 117,115 confirmed infections have also been detected in our country.
The increase in the number of infections continues to progress more slowly. In the week of 20 to 26 September, an average of 1,550.6 confirmed corona infections per day were detected in Belgium. Compared to a week earlier, this is an increase of 9 percent. Yesterday morning there was still an increase of 11 percent compared to a week earlier.
In that period an average of 4.3 people died per day. On a weekly basis, this is on average almost 1 person (0.9) more per day than a week earlier.
Last week, an average of 66.7 people were also admitted to the hospital per day, almost 15 (14.6) people more compared to 7 days ago. There are currently 716 corona patients in the hospital, 150 of whom are in an intensive care unit.
On Sunday, September 27, the reproduction number, the number that indicates how many people an infected person infected, was 1.17. This means that on average one person infects more than another person and that the epidemic is not yet shrinking. However, the number is dropping: on Sunday, September 13, it was still 1.47. No data is yet known for later days.
