Just one more person has tested positive for coronavirus in Luxembourg, the Ministry of Health said on Monday, while no more fatalities have been reported in more than a week.

A total of 4,019 people have been contaminated with Covid-19 in the Grand Duchy, a number that rose by only seven over the long Pentecost weekend, while just 35 people are hospitalised with the virus - four of those in intensive care.

The number of fatalities from the virus remains stable at 110, with the last death reported on May 24, more than a week ago. 

In neighbouring Germany there were 221 new cases in 24 hours, as of Monday morning, bringing the total to 183,410, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. That compares with 267 the previous day and almost 7,000 at the peak of the outbreak in late March.

In neighbouring Belgium, there were 19 deaths and 25 more people hospitalised from the virus in 24 hours, the country's health ministry said on Monday, with 136 new cases of Covid-19 reported.

Luxembourg is finally beginning to come back to life with restaurants, bars and cafés opening on Wednesday last week, following more than two months of lockdown to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.
