The Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Xavier Bettel, placed under observation at the hospital on Sunday, will have to remain hospitalized for another “two to four days” because of the persistence of symptoms of the coronavirus.
He had been transferred to the hospital after having tested positive for Covid-19 and to “carry out additional analyzes”.
His current state of health is considered “serious but stable”.
Symptoms after a European summit
Xavier Bettel, 48, began on June 27 a period of ten days in isolation, less than 48 hours after a European summit in Brussels where he had met the other leaders of the European Union. The head of the Luxembourg government then presented mild symptoms (fever, headache).
No other participant had been considered as a contact case, the barrier gestures having been respected, having then indicated the government of Luxembourg. Xavier Bettel received a first injection of the AstraZeneca vaccine on May 6.
