Note: these figures are taken from updated data published by Sciensano in “open data” and tabulated here.
¹ The cases detected are the number of patients for whom a positive test has confirmed the presence of the virus. The date that is considered is the date of the diagnosis, not the test result. Data is considered consolidated after 4 days. The number of cases may depend in part on the testing strategy: if we test more systematically, we also detect more cases.
² Hospitalized patients include patients already hospitalized for another reason, and who have tested positive
³ The positivity rate is the number of positive tests compared to the number of tests performed. The same person can be tested several times. It also depends on the testing strategy: if we do not test enough, the positivity rate will be higher.
