Recently, the new mobile network 5G was launched in Belgium. This fifth generation of wireless communication technology raises a lot of questions and concerns. Together with the fact that, so far, very little research has been done on the health effects of 5G, fake news and conspiracy theories emerged.
Researchers from the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM), the University of Antwerp and Sciensano will follow up health workers who have already become ill with the COVID-19 virus. During a possible new outbreak of the virus, health workers are most at risk for a new infection. The research is led by ITM and supported through an accelerated procedure by the Fonds Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek — Vlaanderen (FWO) to respond to the urgency of COVID-19 research.

In early May, 8.4% of health workers in Belgian hospitals had antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This is the conclusion of a study by Sciensano, the Belgian public health institute and the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) in Antwerp.
Sciensano investigates how many blood donors have built up antibodies against Covid-19. For this study, Sciensano works together with the Red Cross in Flanders and the Service du Sang in Brussels and Wallonia that supply the blood samples.
