Covid-19 surge in Belgium leads to shortage of doctors, teachers and police
BRUSSELS - Well into Europe's second wave of the coronavirus, so many Belgians are sick...
Caitlin Rivers, PhD
"so many Belgians are sick or quarantining that there aren't enough police on the streets, teachers in classrooms or medical staff in hospitals....at some hospitals in the city, between one-fifth and one-quarter of medical staff is sick or quarantining."
Dr Zoë Hyde
(1/2) In Belgium, so many people are sick or quarantining that there aren’t enough police on the streets, teachers at school, or healthcare workers in hospitals. Some healthcare staff with asymptomatic #COVID19 are being asked to keep working.
The speed at which Covid-19 can get out of control is amazing. Only a few weeks ago, some people in Ireland were talking about Belgium as a good example for us to follow:
För en månad sedan hade Belgien lika många fall per dag som Sverige har nu Nu är de i samma sits som de var i våras. Lika fulla sjukhus. Och sjukvårdspersonal får jobba vidare trots positivt test pga personalbrist Och hela vintern är kvar för oss alla
I’m very worried that this is where Manitoba is headed.
