The Cabinet of Minister Beke and Minister De Block have decided on the basis of input from the Flemish Agency for Care and Health that the Day of Care Healthcare on the 15th of March cannot/may not take place because of the Corona virus, which is currently also actively present in Belgium.
It is irresponsible to let a large mass of people come into contact with vulnerable fellow human beings (e.g. sick and elderly people) in hospitals, residential care centres, ... Hence the decision for the general cancellation of the Day of healthcare event. Dag van de Zorg vzw brings this message with pain in the heart. They are looking internally at how this can continue and will follow it up.
