We’ve been talking about this for several weeks: cases of bronchiolitis in children are increasing. On the side of the Carolos hospitals, however, we want to be reassuring, recalling that “we have already experienced such epidemics in the past, before the Covid. We are in a year where the figures are higher, without however exploding. The figures resume a normal rhythm at this period. And with the arrival of vaccines, this will be regulated, ”says the Charleroi University Hospital.
This records 14 cases of bronchiolitis. Eight of them are children and six are adults. “Two children are in intensive care. They are less than two years old, ”adds the CHU.
At the Grand Hôpital de Charleroi (GHdC) and at the Notre-Dame de Grâce hospital in Gosselies (NDGG), we also observe this increase, without however being alarmed: “Unlike Brussels, we are not saturated, but rather in a classic epidemic situation”.
Same situation on the Jolimont site, in Lobbes, where “there are more cases, but it remains manageable”.
