Philippe Olivier, medical director of the CHC de Liège, explains to us how hospitals fear a rebound in the epidemic.
The wave of coronavirus that hit the country in the spring put hospitals in a critical situation: lack of preparation, lack of equipment, lack of staff … Belgium has come close to disaster. In fact, it was very close to reaching the level of saturation experienced by Italy.
Now that the first signs of a second wave are being felt again, are hospitals any better prepared? Yes and no, according to Philippe Olivier, the medical director of the CHC de Liège.
