This year 2020 was marked by the appearance of this Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
After a promising start with the continuation of courses for emergency physicians and the conference on February 28, our activities in plenary sessions were stopped because of total confinement in Belgium until June and, then, after a brief lull during the summer leave period, the second wave and the re-confinement still in progress.
However, this period of calm allowed us on the one hand to evaluate our courses for emergency physicians via a very positive feedback from the medical services and firefighters concerning CCS (Contamination Control Station) procedures and methods of dressing and undressing in contaminated environments applied by these first responders as part of their work related to Covid-19 and on the other hand to promote the Institute and develop our network in anticipation of new courses and requested training which will apply as soon as the health situation will allow.
