Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Minister of Health Paulette Lenert held a press briefing on Monday. Here are our live translations.

It's only been a week since the last press conference, and already the government has announced another briefing for Monday. New measures are being announced, but there is no lockdown or closure of sectors, Bettel reiterated.

Other EU countries such as Belgium and the Netherlands have tightened their coronavirus restrictions, and Europe is seeing a worrying surge in cases in general.

Furthermore, Europe rushed to ban travel from southern Africa on Friday to slow the spread of a new Covid-19 strain that scientists fear could torpedo efforts to beat the pandemic.
