If the figures concerning the number of contaminations and hospitalizations are not alarming in Luxembourg, another indicator calls for vigilance. According to the analysis of wastewater, “a significant increase in the circulation of the virus was highlighted at the beginning of the week and confirmed at the end of it”, indicates the Ministry of Health in its retrospective of the week from September 27 to October 3 transmitted this Wednesday.
Thus, the prevalence of the coronavirus in wastewater rose in one week from “moderate” to “lifted”. It is difficult to explain this development precisely, but it goes hand in hand with the fairly high incidence rate among the youngest. The 0-14 age group has the highest incidence rate in the country with 201 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, more than twice as many as for the general population (93 cases per 100,000 inhabitants).
24.6% of people in intensive care vaccinated
More than a third of new Covid infections concerned children and pre-adolescents under the age of 14 last week, while they represent only 15% of the country’s population.
Remember that the youngest have very little risk of contracting a serious form of Covid-19 and of being hospitalized. Since the vaccine is only authorized over 12 years of age, most are not vaccinated. Widely vaccinated, those over 75 and 60-74 have the lowest incidence rate. Nearly 82% of patients hospitalized in normal care and 75.4% of people in intensive care were not or partially vaccinated last week.
