"So, we had to take the COVID test. There was a lot of apprehension, but it went very well. There is good organization, good location, and good equipment. I think everything will go well."

"The latest studies show that, broadly speaking, up to 80 per cent of cases might be asymptomatic. So, we're only picking up a select few individuals. And so, we haven't got a great understanding at this moment in time what's actually going on in the population. And it's very vital for us to have this understanding in order to basically, again, limit transmission and thereby spread of the virus through he population."

Luxembourg has begun a nationwide coronavirus testing campaign.
Residents are being sent invites to get themselves tested for COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus, at one of the 17 testing centres around the small country.
The process is voluntary and the results are expected to shine a light on people who have the virus but aren't showing signs of sickness.
"The latest studies show that, broadly speaking, up to 80 per cent of cases might be asymptomatic," said Luxembourg COVID-19 Task Force spokesperson Paul Wilmes.
"So, we haven't got a great understanding at this moment in time what's actually going on in the population. And it's very vital for us to have this understanding in order to basically, again, limit transmission and thereby spread of the virus through the population."
Luxembourg has so far reported 3,995 virus cases and 110 deaths, according to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.
However, the number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick.
