This staggering number emerged as a response to a parliamentary question from the Pirate Party.

Health Minister Paulette Lenert gave her response at the Chamber of Deputies on Tuesday.
There were 1,990 inpatient Covid treatments in hospitals in 2020, costing around 17,100 Euro on average.

286 Covid patients were in intensive care and their treatments averaged to just under 57,000 Euro. Use of a ventilator cost nearly 71,000 Euro and was necessary 173 times last year. Add to this the costs of Long Covid.

In comparison, a non-Covid treatment in an ICU costs around 1,600 Euro per day.

A dose of Covid vaccine comes to 60 Euro.
