All the indicators concerning the coronavirus epidemic in Belgium are again green on this Sunday, February 14, even if we should rather speak of a plateau than of a decline, the decrease remaining limited, and the figures playing yo-yo for several weeks.
The most notable change, however, concerns the number of cases detected per day. 1895 new cases detected were recorded this Sunday, against 2,438 last Sunday, which contributes to further reduce an average which has been declining for a week now: we are thus back below 2000 cases per day. Average number of coronavirus infections now rises at 1949.9 per day between February 4 and 10, down 17% compared to the previous week.
This decrease is now observed throughout the country, even in the province of Namur, only place where it continued to progress.
It is part of a context where, after having climbed for a long time, the number of tests leveled off a little (-7% over one week). The positivity rate, which continues to decline slowly, and is currently 5%, shows that the circulation of the virus is still decreasing, despite the variants which progress a little. This rate had not fallen below 5% since mid-September.
The number of people currently hospitalized with Covid-19 stands at 1,568, including 298 in intensive care. This is a number that is decreasing much less quickly than at the end of the first wave, when we had gone from 2,000 hospitalized to less than 500 in one month. Here, we went from 2081 to 1568 in a month and a half.
35 new deaths were counted, against 57 last Sunday, but overall the number of deaths from Covid-19 remains fairly stable. The average number of deaths was 41 per day over the period between February 4 and 10, or a very slight 1.4% decrease compared to the previous week.
The coronavirus has now claimed the lives of 21,634 people in Belgium since its inception.
According to the latest figures available, some 365,400 people in Belgium received a first dose of the vaccine.
I hope you are in health and well.
