The DP MPs André Bauler and Carole Hartmann were informed that there were no more free appointments at the vaccination center in Ettelbruck for some elderly people from the northern tip of the country who were invited to the Covid-19 vaccination. They were told by phone that they had to make an appointment in Mondorf. The MPs asked the Minister of Health whether these were individual cases and what options older people have in such a case.

„Eis ass aus ganz seriöser Quell gesot ginn, datt eeler Leit, déi geimpft sollte ginn, an déi am Norde wunnen, eng Invitatioun kruten, sech dann och zu Ettelbréck wollten umellen, mee dunn awer um Telefon gesot kruten, si missten op Mondorf fueren, well zu Ettelbréck keng Zäitplage méi fräi wier. 

Dat féiert natierlech zu gréisseren Transportzäiten an zu eventuelle Méikäschte fir déi betraffe Leit, well den Taxi oder den Adapto am Prinzip nëmme bis op Ettelbréck gratis ass. Hei geet et och ëm Leit déi bal 90 Joer al sinn an net sou laang kënnen oder wëllen an engem Taxi ënnerwee sinn. Dovunner ofgesinn ka jo net jiddereen, och net eeler Leit, op den Adapto zeréckgräifen.

An deem Kader wollte mir der Madamm Gesondheetsministesch folgend Froe stellen:

  • Kann d’Madamm Gesondheetsministesch eis soen, ob et sech do ëm Eenzelfäll bzw. ëm een Iertum handelt? Gëtt awer bëssen drop opgepasst, datt Leit am héijen Alter net riskéiere sou wäit mussen ze fueren, zemol wann se aus der Nordspëtzt kommen?
  • Wann d’Leit en neie Rendez-vous kréien, well se aus Altersgrënn oder/an aus Krankheetsgrënn net sou wäit fuere kënnen, riskéieren se dann net onnéideg laang mussen ze waarden?
  • Géife se awer wëlle mam Taxi an den Impfzentrum op Mondorf oder an d’Stad fueren, well se aus verständliche Grënn einfach net méi laang wëlle waarden, kréie se dann trotzdeem déi ganz Faart bezuelt oder mussen se déi aus hirer eegener Täsch bezuelen?“

Will the Moselle Valley become a UNESCO World Heritage Site?

The association “Weltkulturerbe Moselle Valley” is about to submit a candidacy for the inclusion of the Moselle valley as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The winegrowers from Germany are not enthusiastic, however, because the plan is that they will only be allowed to cultivate their terraced vineyards according to the traditional “Einzelpfahlerziehung”. DP member Gusty Grass asked the minister responsible for the candidacy at what stage the candidacy was and whether the minister for viticulture had already contacted the Luxembourg winegrowers to ask them what they thought of the new restriction.

Covid Test

Use of serological tests in Luxembourg

Serological tests can be used to determine whether a person has been infected with the Sars-CoV-2 virus in the past and whether he or she has formed antibodies against this infection. However, a negative serological test a few months after a positive PCR test raises the question of whether the PCR test was false positive. On this issue, DP MP Gusty Graas wanted to know from the Minister of Health, among other things, how many serological tests have already been carried out and whether there is any information on false positive PCR tests.
