The situation continues to be dire in France's Grand Est region and hospitals are suffering from bed shortages. Four more French patients will be transferred to Luxembourg.

Jean Rottner of the Grand Est's regional council took to Twitter to thank Luxembourg for giving the green light to transfer four French patients from Mulhouse to the Grand Duchy's intensive care units.

Rottner applauded the invaluable support and efficient international cooperation.

7 French patients had already been transferred to Luxembourg. One of them succumbed to the virus.
