The typical profile of patients who die from Covid confirms the effectiveness of the vaccine.
Every day, the epidemic floods us with all kinds of figures. New cases, hospitalizations, virus reproduction rate, etc. But there is one that is little or more talked about: that of deaths linked to the disease. However, 30 people have died every day on average for almost two weeks. Incomparable to previous waves, but a figure that remains too high and still mourns many families.
Since the start of the epidemic, 26,669 people have died from the coronavirus. The data we looked at, collected from Sciensano, relate to the period between October 24 and November 22, during which there were 784 deaths (see graph). If we had to draw a robot portrait of the patient who is currently dying of Covid, we would start with a man over 65, more from Flanders or Wallonia than from Brussels and unvaccinated.
