Belgium: The maximum number of people getting admitted to the health care centre due to the variant of the COVID-19 has started to reduce gradually, by observing the new cases of the infection, which has been decreasing for several weeks till now.
According to data released by the Sciensano Public Health Institute on Friday, April 15 morning, an average of 8,585 new Covid-19 infections were diagnosed every day between April 5 and 11, a drop of 11% from the last week.
Moreover, the Omicron BA.2, a highly transmissible Omicron variation, now accounts for 95.7 percent of all cases. A new version of the Omicron coronavirus variety (BA.4) has been detected in Belgium. However, it has yet to appear on Sciensano’s dashboard.
The average number of PCR tests performed each day fell by 20% to 30,364.7. The positivity rate is now 31.1 percent in a similar time, which means that slightly more than three out of every ten tests are positive.
Along with this, a total of 23.6 Covid-19 patients died on a daily basis over the same week, down 1% from the previous week. The maximum number of individuals who have died in Belgium since the outbreak began is 31,165.
This figure also involves the individuals who have faced death because of the other reason, but later on, they have been infected. This means they overestimated the deaths that have been caused by the disease.
Meanwhile, about 201.3 of the patients are suffering from the COVID-19 infection and have been admitted to the hospital on a per-day basis, and there is a decrease of 7 percent observed in the last seven days.
Furthermore, the number that has been shared indicates that the people that have been hospitalised by getting affected by the infection, not the people with the other health issue and then tested positive for the COVID-19 disease.
