Belgium hospitals are witnessing over 220 cases daily


The number of hospitalization in Belgium has increased every day; the country logs around 220 cases every day, and the rise in patients seems to be stabilizing.

According to the data published by the Sciensano Public Health Institute, between 25 to 31 March, approximately 220 patients are admitted to the hospitals every day, which has increased to 17% percent within seven days.


The data, as mentioned earlier, indicates the daily hospital admissions in the country due to the deadly coronavirus, not those admitted with another condition and then test positive for the coronavirus.

During a press conference on Friday, coronavirus infections and hospitalizations due to COVID-19 continue to increase, and it seems to be leveling off in Flanders. Still, not yet in Brussels or Wallonia,” virologist Steven Van Gucht said.

Furthermore, 2,979 patients were admitted to hospitals on Thursday, whereas more than 59 people were administered a day before (on Wednesday).

At the same time, the admission at intensive care centers came to an overall decline in Belgium and now sits at 172 (+8), down from some 400 two months ago.

The number of intensive care centers also includes patients dealing with ailments other than COVID-19.

The highly transmissible Omicron subvariant, the Omicron BA.2 variant, accounts for 90.4% of all cases and has been blamed for the increase in cases in several countries.


The average number of PCR testing on a daily basis decreased by 8% to 38,831.9. The positivity rate now sits at 31.2%, meaning more than three out of ten tests have positive results.

The above figures also include the people who died from another medical sickness; the individuals who were already infected with other kinds of illness also acquired the Covid-19 infection as their body was very immunized to the virus.
