If you look at the corona figures of the past weeks, the number of new hospital admissions will rise sharply. An average of 71 COVID-19 patients are now admitted to our hospitals every day. As a result, there are now, all together, 818 people in the hospital who are infected with the corona virus.

From a virological point of view, this is disturbing in itself. “But what worries us even more is the increase in the number of patients on intensive care, in people who are very ill,” says Margot Cloet of Zorgnet-Icuro, which includes most hospitals.

At present, 184 patients require intensive care, which is a heavy burden for hospitals. Especially in and around Brussels, in Antwerp and in a number of West Flemish hospitals, intensive care units have already become full of late. So full, in fact, that they have to transfer patients to other hospitals.
