On Saturday, 5 September, Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg has visited the COVID-19 screening centre at the Luxembourg Airport (Lux-Airport) alongside Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Minister of Health, Paulette Lenert.
The Grand Duke visited to see the system that has been set up at the airport since 29 May to screen those who are entering Luxembourg. The strategy has been effective in the fight against COVID-19 in Luxembourg.
While there, he and the government officials saw a presentation on how Luxembourg is fighting the virus by René Steinhaus, CEO of Lux-Airport and Jean-Luc Dourson, Director of Bionext.
After the presentation, Grand Duke Henri took part in the screening. The Grand Ducal Court has said after his visit to the airport: “Aware of the importance of these tests in the fight against COVID-19, the Head of State encourages citizens and travellers to be tested and to continue to respect the health measures in force.”
Luxembourg has had close to 6,811 cases with 124 deaths; 6,074 people have recovered from the virus.
