“Only a general lockdown 2.0 can slow down the spread of the coronavirus.” That says biostatistician Geert Molenberghs of the UHasselt. The measures announced by the National Security Council yesterday are a missed opportunity, according to the professor. He also fears that if the number of infections increases further, Belgium will get a code red from other countries, and that travel to our country will therefore be prohibited. We must drastically limit our leisure contacts, Molenberghs calls on. If we don’t, we are heading for a second corona peak higher than the first, resulting in more hospital admissions.
