What is the average participation rate in the “Large Scale Testing” screening programme?

As the second phase of the large-scale screening programme expires on March 24, 2021, the government has just announced that a third phase will be launched by March 15, 2021 and will end on July 15, 2021. In this context, MNA Carole Hartmann would like to know from the Minister of Health, what is the average response rate to invitations sent out as part of the "Large Scale Testing" screening programme?

« Depuis le 24 février 2020, plus de 1,8 million de tests de dépistage ont été réalisés au Luxembourg, dont un million dans le cadre du programme de dépistage “Large Scale Testing”.

La deuxième phase du programme de dépistage à large échelle venant à échéance le 24 mars 2021, le gouvernement vient d’annoncer qu’une troisième phase sera lancée au plus tard le 15 mars 2021 et prendra fin le 15 juillet 2021. 

Au vu des données et statistiques recueillies jusqu’à présent, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Quel est, ventilé par tranche d’âge et par secteur d’activités, le taux de réponse moyen aux invitations envoyées dans le cadre du programme de dépistage “Large Scale Testing” ?
  • Combien de résidents ont déjà subi au moins un test de dépistage dans le cadre du “Large Scale Testing” ? »
