The announcement of a new coronavirus testing centre was made on Saturday during a joint press conference by PM Bettel and Minister of Health Paulette Lenert.

Since the demand for Covid tests has increased again, the National Health Laboratory (LNS) will open a new testing station on Monday. It has been set up in an annexed building of the former national library at 31 Bd Konrad Adenauer, Kirchberg.

The centre will be open every day between 10am and 5pm. Officials further issued a reminder that children below the age of 6 should not be tested.
