Belgium’s Corona Commissioner, Pedro Facon, who stepped back from his tasks on Monday due to health reasons, is reportedly suffering from burnout.

While no official comment regarding his state of health has been made at this time, various sources have confirmed the reason to Het Laatste Nieuws. 

In early October, Facon was appointed as Corona Commissioner by the federal government, with the task of managing the crisis and ensuring a consistent approach, despite Belgium’s fragmented health policy.

During his absence, Facon will be replaced by the deputy commissioner, Carole Schirvel, and the chief operating officer, Augustin Coppée, the taskforce announced in a statement on Monday.
