Positivity by Category
Unlike total doses administered, total first doses administered gives a clearer picture about the progression and efficiency of the vaccination relative to the available stock factoring in how many doses are held back to secure the administration of a second dose.
Multi-dose vaccines are counted once, except for AstraZeneca for which only 25% — instead of 50% — are held back starting from . As it's unclear how exactly this policy is implemented the chart shows 75% of all AZ doses delivered starting from ).
Delivery schedule as of with amendments from press reports.
As a second dose is held back for most vaccines the % of doses used can't reach 100% until vaccination is complete.
New Cases and Tests by Category
Since the MoH publishes additional data on positive and total tests broken down by how/where the person was tested. Data on cases and tests from the LST scheme is available from to , but it is unclear how reliable these figures are.
Tests are categorized into four groups: on prescription by a doctor ("Diagnostic"), as part of contact tracing from previously detected cases ("Tracing"), as part of the Large Scale Testing scheme including entry/exit tests ("LST") and via a free voluntary test at the airport ("Airport"). "Unknown" includes tests from dates where no breakdown is available, or if the number of total tests is greater than the sum of all categories (for example if the number of tests is corrected upwards on a later date).
Active Diagnosed Cases
Age Distribution of Active Cases
A breakdown of active cases per 5-year group is only available since mid May, and allows for a view on what age group is currently the impacted the most.
It's important to remember that age is not distributed evenly in the whole population (cf. Figure 16). Some groups also have more contacts on average and thus more opportunities to get infected.
Data on ages of all tested persons by day is not available, nor is there any information on the distribution of diagnosed cases by day.
Similar to testing, data on hospitalisations was only sparse before 3 April. On 27 March the capacity of hospitals in Luxembourg was 2354 beds with an additional 230 available if needed, 119 beds for intensive care patients with 80 further beds available if needed. The number of hospitalised patients for reasons other than COVID-19 is unknown.
Proportion of total new cases/tests by residency
[a] The data wasn't/isn't reported daily, showing an increase would be misleading.
[b] Includes cases from residents only. Based on 626108 residents.
[c] Includes tests from residents only. Based on 626108 residents.
[d] Corrections to daily new cases and tests have generally been negligible. If this changes it could bias the indicator downwards and the window used to calculate will need be shifted backwards by a few days.
