Today the advisory committee announced a full range of possibilities and facilitations, but nothing was mentioned about fighting the Indian alternative. Professor of general practice at Vrije Universiteit Brussel Dirk Devroey is concerned that this alternative could throw a spanner in the works.
“I’m still hungry. It’s important not only to gain insight into the mitigation, but also into the potential complications that may arise. I haven’t heard of a travel ban in countries where this Indian alternative is starting to emerge,” says Deveroy.
The professor of public practice says the government’s summer plan definitely has a chance for success. That is, if the promised vaccines continue to be offered and if the intensive care numbers continue to develop positively. Although it remains a “fragile equilibrium,” for Daffroy.
Fear of the Indian alternative
“We are resting before there is a place in intensive care, so people are mortgaging the future,” he says. We can still pay off the mortgage, but nothing should get in the way. There is a fear of an Indian alternative that could throw a key into the business. “
Finally, Deveroy confirms once again that the hospitals are still running at full capacity. Even when the number of hospital admissions drops, problems can still arise.
“There is relaxation for everyone, except the hospitals. They can continue to work. I can assure you that we cannot currently find any nurses for vaccination or testing. While we now have to test a lot with travelers leaving and returning,” says Deveroy.
