The number of people hospitalised with COVID-19 has increased by 216 in the past 24 hours. There are currently 1,859 people receiving treatment for COVID-19 in Belgian hospitals. Of these 381 are in intensive care. This is 59 more than was the case at 11am on Monday.
Of the 526 people that have tested positive for the novel coronavirus in the past 24 hours. 381 live in Flanders, 87 in Wallonia and 38 in the Brussels-Capital Region.
The Federal Health Department has no information about where the remaining 20 people that tested positive during the past 24 hours are resident.
The figures on the number of infections only reflect those that have tested positive and as such are an underestimation of the true number of people that are infected.
