On 19 March 2020, Minister for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises Lex Delles and Minister for Family Affairs and Integration Corinne Cahen launched the online sales platform corona.letzshop.lu, dedicated to vulnerable people.
In the context of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, this platform supports people who are not able to make their purchases themselves by taking advantage of the existing letzshop.lu infrastructure. The new platform offers a home delivery service for more than 40 basic necessities such as rice, pasta, milk, fruit and vegetables. In order to reach out to all of the vulnerable people, the platform corona.letzshop.lu is not only available online, but can also be contacted via telephone on 8002 92 92.
Minister for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses Lex Delles stated in this context that "we all have to prove our solidarity, especially in these difficult times. Thanks to the corona.letzshop.lu platform, vulnerable people have access to products of basic necessity, without exposing themselves to the potentially dangerous proximity of other people."
Minister for Family Affairs and Integration Corinne Cahen stressed that "we absolutely must protect vulnerable people. The new platform is a key element in this process, as it allows those concerned to obtain supplies in complete safety. I would also like to emphasise once again that in this time of crisis, solidarity plays a more important role than ever before. I therefore call on citizens to use this platform only if they are considered vulnerable and have no other means of obtaining supplies."
It should be noted in this context that the online sales platform corona.letzshop.lu is exclusively dedicated to sales to vulnerable people who have no other means of obtaining supplies. This includes people over 65 years, as well as individuals with diabetes, a cardiovascular condition, a chronic illness of the respiratory tract, an immune system weakened by a condition or treatment, or cancer.
Any vulnerable person who may have recourse to another means of supply (family members, Scouts, etc.) is being asked to not use this website or phone number.
The main website letzshop.lu remains open to the public.
