"The number of people with a new corona infection is only coming in drop by drop," says pulmonologist Evan Van Braeckel. "But that is not to say that the story is completely over. There are still quite a lot of people in intensive care for whom the outcome is still uncertain. And in the regular wards there are also seriously ill people who are going to have a long rehabilitation. ”
