Public health and Covid-19 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 80.1 years for men and 83.6 years for women. For comparison: worldwide life expectancy is about 9.5 years lower (men: 69.8 / women: 74.9 years).

Spread of COVID-19 in Liechtenstein

Current incidence in the week ending 02/04/2023: 23.2 new infections per 100,000 population

Since the beginning of the pandemic until February 4th, 2023, a total of 21,359 infected people and 87 deaths have been reported in Liechtenstein.

The total of 21,359 infected people currently represents 55.12 percent of the total population. The number of new infections during the seven days preceding February 4th, 2023, was 9, for a 7-day incidence of 23.2 cases per 100,000 population. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 0.4 percent in Liechtenstein.

Current vaccination status

According to official WHO data, a total of 71,104 vaccine doses have been administered as of April 10th, 2022. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 26,681 people who have received at least one vaccination (68.9 percent). The booster vaccination was received by 18,310 people (47.3 percent).

26,346 of these are considered fully vaccinated in Liechtenstein (= 68.0 percent).
This means that Liechtenstein is only in the middle of the field in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 93 countries.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we update the worldwide case numbers daily. A list of all infections and deaths by country can be found on our COVID-19 virus topic page.

Drinking water supply

The drinking water supply in Liechtenstein is 100 percent tapped for all inhabitants. Only very few countries achieve this standard, where every inhabitant has a water connection in the immediate vicinity with tested drinking water. In a global comparison, only about 74 percent of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 98 percent. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10 percent.


The above data correspond to the information from the World Health Organization, Global Health Workforce Statistics, UNICEF, State of the World's Children, Childinfo, Global Health Observatory Data Repository and OECD. The case numbers for the spread of the COVID-19 come from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
