Epidemiologist Pierre Van Damme was a guest in ‘Het Journaal’ on one. Here he explained why the measures in our country are so strict.
“We need immediate measures in acute circumstances,” emphasizes Van Damme. “The measures that are being taken have been taken for a certain period of time, because we did not want to go back to an even worse situation of the lockdown. Based on what we are seeing now. in Antwerp that seems to be the right decision. ”
If the tracking system also works well, this will go hand in hand with relaxation, according to Van Damme. The combination of the springing up with the measures must be the solution to be able to learn to live with this virus.
“Because that will be the situation: we will have to learn to live with it. We will also be able to do that, but then the detection must work optimally, ”says the epidemiologist. “That way we can map out each case very clearly and then we will have it well under control.”
