Corona virus and healthcare in Liechtenstein

Healthcare in Liechtenstein

The effectiveness of the health care system in Liechtenstein is well above average in a global comparison.

Probably the most important indicator that can be used to summarize the efficiency of all measures is general life expectancy. In other words, the theoretical age that a newborn child could potentially reach today. At the moment this age in Liechtenstein is 80.7 years for men and 85.5 years for women. For comparison: worldwide life expectancy is about 10.5 years lower (men: 70.4 / women: 74.9 years).

Distribution of the corona virus

Spread of the corona virus in Liechtenstein

By April 12th, 2021, 2768 infected persons and 56 deaths have been reported in the country. The first confirmed infections were reported in March 2020, which is the date of the official notification. An additional 10-14 days are calculated for noticing one's own infection, the doctor's appointment, the laboratory test and, above all, the period from the infection until the first symptoms appear.

The total of 2,768 infected people represent 7.3% of the country's total population.


The first graph shows the number of reported infections per calendar week. The second graph below the number of deaths.

Mortality rate of infected persons

From the previously infected and deceased people, in Liechtenstein results in a mortality rate of 2.0%. However, it should be borne in mind that death occurs an average of 19 days after the first symptoms appear. The time of the actual infection is therefore followed by several days until a person affected has a medical test carried out and the results are available. In order to quantify mortality more precisely, one would therefore have to compare the deaths that have occurred to date with those reported 2,697 infected up to 14 days ago. This gives in Liechtenstein a new mortality rate of 2.0%.

Due to the current corona pandemic, we update the worldwide case numbers weekly. A list of all infected and dead people by country can be found on our Corona virus topic page.

Supply with drinking water

The drinking water supply in Liechtenstein is 100% accessible to all residents. Only very few countries achieve this standard, in which every inhabitant has a water connection in the immediate vicinity with tested drinking water. In a global comparison, only about 71% of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 97%. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10%.
