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

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

Earlier reports suggested the UK Government could take Luxembourg, Belgium and Croatia from the list, and was keeping a close eye on the rate of coronavirus infections in each nation.

The move by the Scottish 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.
