The now well-known quote ‘Stay in your Kot’ indeed prevented Belgian hospitals from having the same fate as was the case in Italy and Spain. Hundreds of sick people in the corridors of the hospitals, coffins in refrigerated trucks, in parking garages and ice rinks. Indeed, after a few weeks the Virus had worn off and the numbers went down. Oof.
Since then the politicians go to church every day to pray that the virus is gone by now. One thing they forget is that because of this strict quarantine, only a very small part of the Belgian population is now immune. One small shock and the Virus will attack again.
“Belgium will save money in health care. The health workers will work for just the minimum wage….and mouth masks? No, we, politicians and Virologists are convinced that they are NOT useful (read … Oops, I, as the responsible minister, have had millions of mouth masks destroyed). Barely a month later, Belgium has 6 Ministers regarding these masks. A joke arount this is that the Belgians have to take their sewing machine from under the dust to sew their own mouth masks, …story to be told to the chickens in the backyard.
And where should Albert Einstein go for holidays ?
I think Sweden, Italy or Spain. Certainly not to Belgium with that kind of low Immunity rate.
I predict that this virus will finally undermine the short-term thinking of the Belgian political caste and that the Belgian population will rebel. Remember these words…Belgian hospitals will be overwhelmed within a period of 2 months. Enormous amount of patient and social worker casualties.
