In order to fight against the Coronavirus (COVID-19), a patient reception structure next to the Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg will be installed during the next few days, with the support of the NSPA (NATO Support and Procurement Agency) which has provided us with the equipment.
The Grand Ducal Regulation of 18 March introducing a series of measures in the context of the fight against COVID-19 was published in the official journal of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and has thus entered into effect on this day. As a consequence, the state of crisis has been declared on the national territory, in accordance with article 32(4) of the Constitution.
Today, the Prime Minister, Minister of State, Xavier Bettel, has made a statement at the Chamber of Deputies about the Government's measures to face COVID-19. This was followed by a statement by the Minister of Health, Paulette Lenert.
Taking into account the evolution of the coronavirus COVID-19 in our neighbouring countries and on the national territory, it is necessary to take additional measures to limit the spread of the virus in the population and to protect those at risk.
