Since the COVID-19 virus surfaced in Belgium, our society has shown tremendous solidarity. We have all learned to behave responsibly in order to monitor our own health and that of others. Several initiatives have been launched to help the most vulnerable and isolated people. Thanks to these actions, the curve is flattening and professional healthcare providers are able to deal with patients infected with the coronavirus in the best possible way.
We are going to need that solidarity more and more in the coming weeks. It is essential that we avoid a new peak of coronavirus infections. During this period, we must continue to respect the habits we have adopted to protect our health. It’s the only way to remain vigilant.
In addition, there is other responsible behaviour that we must learn and continue to follow in the coming days. We will be coming out of our cocoon to see our loved ones again and go back to work. Picking up our lives will be possible by extending our network in a safe way against the virus that, unfortunately, is still present in our society. Small, but repetitive, habits will make this possible.
Thanks to a common goal and despite our different personal and professional situations, we have been able to control the spread of the virus together and, as a result, we will continue to be able to rely on each other in the coming weeks to protect our health. The solidarity of our society is our strength. Let’s use it now to take on Covid-19.
