Below is the recent coronavirus figures in Leuven, Belgium. The figures are retrieved from Sciensano.
Sunday, 17 January 2021
The newly confirmed figures show that the total number of coronavirus cases (i.e. the number of newly diagnosed cases) over the last 14 days is now 167, an increase of 15 from yesterday.
Sciensano has defined the alarm thresholds based on the number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants over the last 14 days. To calculate this, the number of newly diagnosed cases is multiplied by 100000, and then the product is divided by the population of the city. For Leuven, that number will now be 163 (i.e. (167 * 100 000)/102 380. Leuven thus has more than 100 cases and therefore the city is currently at alarm level 4 (i.e. 100 cases or more in a population of 100,000). Alarm 4 level means code red. This is the highest defined alarm threshold.
