    Maggie De Block takes stock of the first case of coronavirus here

    Pascale Bollekens
    Posted at 11:23 a.m.

    This morning the Minister of Health, Maggie De Block gave news on the state of health of the nine people repatriated from Wuhan to our home. She first confirmed that one of the tests carried out immediately after leaving the plane on Sunday evening was positive . Dr. Van Ranst of the Belgian reference laboratory for coronaviruses: "We have very precise tests and we have repeated the test to confirm it. It is indeed the same new virus appeared in China. The tests of the 8 other people are all negative. "

    A positive case but without symptoms

    The minister added that the person infected with the new virus was transported, that night, calmly to Saint-Pierre hospital, one of the two reference hospitals for coronavirus: "He has no symptoms and is in fairly good shape. health, he was serene and will be followed at Saint-Pierre hospital until his recovery. "

    Do not panic, the protocol was followed to the letter

    Steven Van Gucht, President of the scientific committee on relativized coronavirus: "We had a follow-up protocol for cases of Coronavirus, and we followed it to the letter. All returnees were immediately tested and kept at the Luckily because the infected person had no symptoms, so there is little chance that other people were infected in the group. We will continue regular testing to make sure there are no other infected person. They will remain in quarantine for 14 days as scheduled. "

    The more days pass, the less chance there is of having another case. The majority of cases occur within the first 7 days of contamination. But as a precaution, we wait for the fourteenth day before taking people out of their quarantine.

    Finally, a Danish national who stayed with us for two more nights due to colds was tested negative. She will be repatriated to Denmark today.

    Maggie De Block recalled that the Ministry of Health has created an official website for the coronavirus and that it is updated regularly. Everyone can find all the information on the epidemic there. She recalls that if you are in doubt about symptoms that resemble those of the flu, it is better to call your doctor than to go to your waiting room. And to inform his doctor, in case of contact with people returning from China in the preceding days. Every day, the Belgian reference laboratory for Coronavirus tests people suspected of being infected so far. All the tests (apart, of course, from the positive case among Belgian returnees) have been negative.

                Home > Regions > Liège Liège - Today at 9:02 pm - The Future

                The CHU de Liège has just announced the presence of 7 suspected cases of coronavirus.

                This morning, Federal Minister of Health Maggie De Block (Open Vld) announced that 6 new cases of coronavirus have been detected in Belgium. Among the six new cases, five patients are from Flanders and one from Brussels. The total number of Belgian citizens infected is currently eight. But the CHU de Liège has just announced in a press release that it had recorded several suspected cases this Monday, March 2.

                “The CHU of Liège recorded on March 2, 7 suspected cases: one is hospitalized in a non-critical condition; a second is being explored. The other five are in segregation at home. For these seven cases, the analyzes were sent, in accordance with the procedure, to the KUL laboratory. We are awaiting the results. ”

                The CHU de Liège specifies that it has taken precautionary measures. "We are putting in place the separation of patient flows, we are recalling the hygiene instructions and recommend that visitors take special precautions."

                Here are the different measures recommended by the hospital:

                "1. If you have the following symptoms: fever, cough, broad viral syndrome (muscle pain, sneezing, ...) Please postpone your visit.

                2. We do not recommend any non-essential visit to a patient suspected of coronavirus, in particular if you are yourself a vulnerable person, at risk of complications, ...

                3. If you consider that this visit is strictly necessary, please reduce the number of visitors (two per day), stay in the room and apply the following hygiene instructions: - Rub your hands using a hydro-alcoholic solution before entering the room; - Wear a surgical mask which will be given to you in the department; - Stand two meters away from the patient; - Remove and discard the mask at the outlet; - Disinfect your hands again.

                  On Monday night, five new cases of people infected with the coronavirus (Covid-19) were detected in Belgium, according to the FPS Public Health.

                  All new patients have recently returned from Northern Italy. All new patients have the same moderate symptoms, meaning they are running a fever, have a cold and are coughing a lot.

                  Two of the patients that tested positive on Monday night live in Flanders, two are from Wallonia, and one is from Brussels.

                  They are currently receiving “the necessary care in a safe environment”, according to the FPS Public Health. “All patients are closely monitored by the infectious disease physicians of their respective Region. They are also responsible for tracing and following up the contacts the patients have had since their return,” the FPS added.

                  This brings the total number of infected people that have been confirmed with the coronavirus in Belgium to 13.

The hospitals have been notified. The CHU of Liège did not receive a call from the SPF or the KUL laboratory. Our cases are therefore negative. Little reminder: there is no reason, if you do not display any flu symptoms, to cancel or postpone your consultations. A sorting of emergencies is installed and the patients coronavirus suspects do not meet others " .

                        Ten new patients with Covid-19 in our country after testing 495 samples in reference laboratory

                        On 3 March, the KULeuven reference laboratory carried out 495 coronavirus tests. Ten tests were COVID19 positive.

                        Nine out of ten Covid-19 positive patients returned from a holiday in northern Italy. They developed an upper respiratory tract infection with relatively mild flu-like symptoms, and remain in home isolation.

                        One patient developed a more severe pneumonia and was therefore admitted to the Saint Peter's Hospital in Brussels. This patient had not traveled himself, but a thorough investigation of his contacts revealed that he had been in contact here in Belgium with a Covid-19 positive patient who had made a trip to Venice.

                        The total number of Covid-19 infections detected in Belgium is currently 23. We expect this number to continue to rise.

                          “The patient was given a mask and was immediately placed in isolation away from the emergency ward,” Dubois said. “They were then sent back home since they did not present worrying symptoms.”

                          The patient, whose age and gender was not communicated, will have to remain in isolation in their homes, in accordance with the advice given by the federal public health services (FPS Santé).

                          Dubois said the patient came to the hospital centre after he started developing symptoms, which were described as “flu-like,” telling hospital staff that he had recently been in the northern Italian region of Lombardy, one of the main outbreak areas in Italy.

                          The confirmation by the ISPPC would bring the count of confirmed cases of new Covid-19 coronavirus in Belgium up from the current 23
