#Belgium – “we are forced to use asymptomatic doctors and nurses in the COVID-19 wards”

Belgium, Coronavirus, Europe, Health

DW: Dr. Devos, how many people have CVID-19 at CHC Montlegia?

Devos: Around 250.

DW: And how many doctors are in there treating them?

Devos: More than 100. We have to do shifts, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

DW: And how many of those doctors have the coronavirus right now?

DEvos: We have around 10% of doctors and nurses that are symptomatic, and they’re at home, sick. At other hospitals in Liege, we have around 25% of doctors and nurses who are symptomatic. So we are lucky in my hospital compared to the other ones in the city. And for this reason, we are forced to use asymptomatic doctors and nurses in the COVID-19 wards.

DW: So you have doctors, right now, in hospitals here in Liege, who are working — even though they have the coronavirus?

Devos: Yes, they are infected, but not sick.
