On Wednesday it was announced that hospitals must keep a quarter of the beds at Intensive free for covid patients. They now occupy 704 beds, 219 of which are in Intensive Care. A week ago there were 192. The number of patients rose by 14% in one week. There are 2,000 beds available in the Intensive Department in our country. “And according to the most conservative predictions, we will go to 300 patients on Intensive next week,” says Margot Cloet of the hospital umbrella organization Zorgnet Icuro.
