Real quick side note: Gaga had a sister who was mean as a snake, and she married a man named Mr. Jones. When my siblings wanted to get under my skin, they'd call me Mrs. Jones and bust out laughing before I tried to take their heads off!!
Take care Grosse.
We have our (big) tennis disagreements, but in times like this, we all need to be together and support each other!
As for the situation in Belgium (trying to show some light at the end op the tunnel); social distancing and strong measures do help! We now see a clear decline in number of new daily infections and new cases in hospitals.
The number of new infections is (for me) not a reliable number as it depends on the number of tests than you can do. We now do 10000 tests a day (on a population of 11M). The US-equivalent would be 300.000 tests per day (= same number of tests per capita).
The most reliable picture is the number of new cases in hospital per day. And that has been going down for a while now. Peak was on 29-03 with 629 new hospital admissions.
Last 5 days
01-04: 584 new cases
02-04: 578 new cases
03-04: 503 new cases
04-04: 499 new cases
05-04: 420 new cases
On a graph, there is now a clear decline. We see the same with new cases in ICU: it decreases all the time.
Death toll still going up, bit in many cases these are people that were in hospital for 1-2 weeks, so they are related to # cases of 2 weeks ago (when numbers were still going up).
Keep up the good spirit, stay away from other people, and take care!!!
