From 18 March, general physicians' Medical centres receive patients with symptoms of a severe respiratory infection.
The purpose of this channeling is to concentrate these patients outside of emergency departments and general practices, so as to contain the spread of the epidemic, and to provide on-site access to collection capacity for diagnosis of infections by staff with the required protections.
The 3 on-call Medical centres in the country will be open on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.. The objective of this new mode of operation of the Medical centres is to offer people suffering from an acute respiratory infection a dedicated care circuit around three axes: reception and triage of patients - medical consultation - sampling.
"The establishment of this separate flow is part of the Government's efforts to curb the spread of the virus. It is essential to buy time, considering the scale of this epidemic', said the Minister of Health Paulette Lenert.
In order to ensure the proper functioning of the Medical centres, please only visit the Medical Centre as directed by your treating physician.
Three on-call Medical centres are available in the country:
- Luxembourg City
- 59, rue Michel Welter, L-2730 Luxembourg
- 70, rue Émile Mayrisch, L-4240 Esch/Alzette
- 110, avenue Lucien Salentiny, L-9080 Ettelbruck
Options for setting up a similar medical structure in the East of the country are being analysed.
