Luxembourg has reported 3,904 coronavirus cases since the start of the pandemic after 10 more people contracted the disease in the past 24 hours, the Health Ministry said on Wednesday.

The infection rate – indicating to how many people an infected person passes the virus – dropped slightly and now stands at 0.993. A level below one means that the virus is dying out naturally in society.

The virus has killed a total of 103 people as one more person died of Covid-19, the disease caused by coronavirus, between Tuesday and Wednesday.

Just one extra person was admitted to hospital, leaving the overall number of patients at 89. Twenty-two are being treated in intensive care.
