Belgian Medical Workers Stage Protests Against Gov’t Response to Pandemic

By Democracy Now

Belgium has the highest per capita death rate in the world, with just over 9,000 deaths, representing 78 deaths per 100,000 people, though some say the high number could be due to its reporting system, which counts deaths of non-hospitalized people. In the town of Liège, doctors and nurses held a socially distanced flash mob to draw attention to their demands. This is a nurse speaking about the action.

Manu Delhaxhe: “This action is a bit to make people here in Belgium aware of the work we do with working conditions which are not always great, with patients who are not in very good shape. Personally, we are proud to be nurses.”

  • One can only hope that the medical staff in Belgium are more efficient than the Police.
    Belgium boasts the highest level of theft in the world! Not much wonder the Georges Simenon was able to write so well about crime.
