  • Luxembourg could soon see seven times the number of new coronavirus cases per day compared to when the virus first peaked in March, the Covid-19 taskforce warned on Monday, as the number of people sent to hospital with the virus rose by a third in one day.
  • The report called on people to strictly follow hygiene and social distancing measures to bring the epidemic back to a “controllable state”, warning that the numbers will push health workers to their limits.
  • The government and health sector this week are putting more measures in place week converting the canteen at the CHEM hospital in Esch-sur-Alzette into a ward for Covid patients as of next week, as well as setting up a new consultation centre for the virus in Kirchberg.
