Sciensano, the Belgian institute for health, is responsible for the epidemiological follow-up of the COVID-19 epidemic in collaboration with its partners and other healthcare actors. The data collected can provide insight into the dynamics of the epidemic, help to anticipate different scenarios and to elaborate possible measures to curb the spread of the virus.
From 31 March, Sciensano will make a set of data available to interested parties on a daily basis. This information is a support for decision making in the control of the epidemic. To achieve its mission, Sciensano has reinforced or set up different surveillance systems thanks to the participation of health professionals.
Sciensano would like to extend its deepest gratitude to all healthcare professionals for their daily investment in the fight against coronavirus and their commitment to patients.
