The Belgian authorities have raised the balance of coronavirus to 44,293 confirmed infections with laboratory tests and 6,679 deaths this Friday. This confirms the downward trend in the number of patients who need to be hospitalized and also those who need to stay in hospital. They need intensive care.
In addition, the National Security Council will release details of the federal government’s plan to begin easing detention this Friday. This will begin on May 4 with the reopening of the first “non-essential” companies and, according to various media, the obligation to wear a mask in public transport as it is difficult to keep the physical safety distance.
According to the latest pandemic figures, a total of 4,355 patients with coronavirus stay in hospital, 210 of whom have been hospitalized in the last 24 hours. A total of 10,122 patients have been discharged since a Covid 19 registry was started in mid-March.
The patients who remain in the intensive care unit are 993, of whom 703 require assisted breathing. In this case, like in the global income calculation, the number of cases on the last day is less than in the previous days.
Of the more than 6,679 deceased, 190 have been notified in the last 24 hours, an account that includes 91 deaths in nursing homes or nursing homes. Belgium includes both deaths whose relationship to coronavirus has been confirmed in hospital tests and those that have occurred in dormitories in its counting method and therefore it was not possible to confirm the diagnosis in the laboratory.
