Minister Vandenbroucke critical of Professor Gala’s statements: ‘Incredibly frivolous’


“What would that gentleman say if I were to announce here that half of the hospitals are closing next week?” An indignant Vandenbroucke wondered. “Would that gentleman, and he may be a professor, say ‘that’s not so bad’?”

“It is also a scientist,” replied presenter Annelies Beck. “Could be anything, but there are some basic facts. Today, a quarter of the capacity we have to provide highly intensive care to very sick people is already occupied. That doubles in eight to nine days. That means that soon half of this capacity will simply be gone. ”

“What would he say if we say in mid-November that all beds have been abolished? That the 2,000 hospital beds in intensive care units have all been abolished, that there is no more hospital capacity for the seriously ill? This man is unimaginably frivolous. You don’t have to be an infectiologist to know that if your intensive hospital beds fill up and this keeps doubling up, you’re going to hit the wall. Ultimately, 2 times 2 times 2 times 2 times 2, … becomes infinitely large ”. Vandenbroucke wants to debate this with Gala.

‘Irresponsible behavior’

Virologist Marc Van Ranst also criticizes Gala’s statements. “This is irresponsible behavior. What this gentleman is doing is being part of the problem ”, the professor said on ‘The Appointment’. “This was the man who said there would be no second wave. This was the man who said there were no problems in the hospitals. This is wrong, period. It is also a major problem for Wallonia, because he appears there every day on TV. This man would be eccentric in any circumstances. Don’t pay him any attention, because that’s too much credit. There is a second wave, his hospital is full. He was wrong. ”

Vandenbroucke came to Terzake to explain the new test strategy. People who have had close contact with someone who is positive but does not show any symptoms themselves will not be tested as of tomorrow 21/10. People returning from a red zone abroad are also no longer eligible for a test. “We simply focus on our priorities. but “we had to switch quickly, otherwise it would capsize at the GPs and the laboratories. Nobody is helped with that. ”
