The National Health Laboratory (LNS) has published its latest report on Respiratory Viruses in Luxembourg (ReViLux) on Friday. The Delta variant currently accounts for 34.8% of all cases.

The Alpha variant has been the cause of 4.1% of all infections.

In a recent interview with RTL, epidemiologist Joel Mossong explained that the sharp increase in infections caused by the Gamma variant is due to a super spreading event which took place on National Day and subsequently led to numerous clusters.

Last week, the Gamma variant accounted for over 72% of all cases.
