Good evening. Here are the most important national and international stories of the day concerning the coronavirus pandemic.

In Luxembourg:

  • Confirmed cases of coronavirus jumped to 1,333, an increase of 234 on the previous day, although the number of deaths has still not increased beyond 8.

  • Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Minister of Health Paulette Lenert held a joint press conference in which they dispelled the rumour that lower case confirmations on weekends are due to decreased testing. You can find our live ticker coverage of their briefing here. 

  • There has been a 25% surge in internet use during the crisis, as the new government-sponsored online shopping platform corona.letzshop.lu has racked up over 1,000 orders already.
