Luxembourg has announced to Covid19 test every one of its 613000 population within the next 1 month. Government has allocated a budget of EUR 40m to this extent.
The large scale testing strategy is formulated by a task force. Essentially done in three stages
- Stage 1: a representative population of a contingent is tested. The results of these tests give an indication of when the contingent can be freed from restrictions and when it should be tested on a large scale
- Stage 2: All persons in the contingent are invited to be tested on a voluntary basis.
- Stage 3: A representative group is selected shortly after the exit measures in order to be tested a second time. This allows monitoring of whether and how the virus is spreading within the contingent.
