Holidays 2020: Luxembourg now back on quarantine list after coronavirus cases surge

Holidays have been thrown into chaos in recent days after the government U-turned on its travel restrictions.

At the weekend the Uk Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advised against non-essential travel to mainland Spain before applying the same restrictions to the Canary Islands and Balearic Islands earlier this week.

Now the government has slapped the same measures on Luxembourg.

Anyone heading to the country will now have to quarantine for 14 days on their return.

The move by the government follows mounting concerns over the rate of coronavirus in the Grand Duchy.

According to the latest figures from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the infection rate in Luxembourg is 1,382 per cent higher than the UK’s.

The 14-day cumulative number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 in Luxembourg is 222.4, compared with 15 for the UK.

There are currently 6,533 confirmed cases of the virus in Luxembourg.
