VUB pharmacists barometer

  • April 9, 2020

Pharmacists stand strong but Covid-19 takes its toll: 2 out of 3 pharmacy visits are coronavirus-related, but 40% not essential. These are among the findings of the latest survey, conducted between 30 March and 3 April, in the Vrije Universiteit Brussel’s barometer assessing the impact of Covid-19 on Belgian pharmacies. The barometer is an initiative of Professor Eline Tommelein of VUB’s Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, who has been monitoring the situation since 15 March. The latest survey evaluated the situation among 637 pharmacies and just over 2,000 pharmacists. The results are shared with Sciensano and VIVEL, the Flemish Institute for Primary Health Care.
