Belgian doctors infected with coronavirus told to keep working

Doctors infected with the coronavirus in the Belgian city of Liege have been asked to keep working in a desperate bid to prevent the health system from collapsing.

About a quarter of hospital health workers in the city are believed to have tested posted to COVID-19.

Ten hospitals in the eastern city have requested doctors who have the coronavirus but no symptoms continue working, Dr Philippe Devos, the head of the Belgian Association of Medical Unions, told the BBC.

He said while there was an obvious risk of transferring the virus to patients, the step was necessary to prevent the hospital system collapsing within days..

An armed person intruded into Bank of Georgia in Zugdidi on October 21 and took 43 people as hostages.

The attacker released the majority of hostages and left the building together with 3 hostages and USD 500 000. He released the 3 hostages late last night.
