Delano : « Restaurants stay closed as shops and schools can reopen »
As the restrictions that came into force on 26 December and until 10 January come to an end this weekend, prime minister Xavier Bettel (DP) and health minister Paulette Lenert (LSAP), during a press conference on Tuesday, gave details on the updated measures and restrictions in place as of next week.
Bettel opened the briefing stating that the measures currently in place had been successful as the numbers had gone down significantly in the past days, with almost 50% fewer hospitalisations in regular care, the PM said.
However, although numbers of covid-19 patients have gone down, there has been a noticeable increase in patients suffering from mental health problems Bettel said, after visiting hospitals across the grand duchy last week and talking to medical staff.
