Luxembourg's Health Minister has recorded a message for RTL Today, reaching out to the Grand Duchy's English-speaking community.

"I wish us the best for 2021," Lenert says, "I hope that this will be the year that we get rid of Covid!".

"Let me take the opportunity to thank all the people who were involved in making Luxembourg able to get the number of infections down again."

The health minister echoes Xavier Bettel's Christmas message in calling for the the community to "stay together, respect the social distancing and keep up the efforts over the next weeks and months."

Lenert acknowledges the importance of the vaccination programme and ends her message by wishing "us all the courage we need to go ahead."
