Risk of a 4th wave of Covid-19 infections

The delta variant of Covid-19 is spreading more and more in Europe. This raises concerns that a fourth wave of infections could hit us in the autumn. DP MPs André Bauler and Carole Hartmann asked the Minister of Health how she assesses the risk of a 4th wave here in the country and whether preparations are already being made for this eventuality.

« En raison de sa forte infectiosité, la variante Delta de la Covid-19 est de plus en plus répandue en Europe. Au Luxembourg, cette variante représente déjà un tiers des nouvelles infections.

En France, l’Institut Pasteur met également en garde contre le risque d’une quatrième vague d’infection en automne. L’évolution de la pandémie dépendra des mesures prises et de la campagne de vaccination.

Dans ce contexte, nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Madame la Ministre, comment évalue-t-elle le risque que nous devrions à nouveau prendre des mesures plus strictes en automne pour éviter un lockdown ?
  • Madame la Ministre, sur quelles données fonde-t-elle son évaluation ?
  • Y a-t-il actuellement des plans en préparation afin d’être en mesure d’agir de manière appropriée en cas d’une nouvelle vague d’infection en automne ? »
