currently, there is extreme pressure on testcentret at Vejlby-Risskov Hall in Aarhus.
a Great many like would like to be tested for COVID-19 – but anyway, was around 140 persons away from the time they had booked for Saturday.
- It is deeply serious in relation to that we should have tested enough, and that there is a long wait on the booked tests, saith the medical director in the Region Midtjylland, Per Sabro Nielsen, to TV2 ØSTJYLLAND.
The 140 persons equivalent to 10 percent of all of the times that yesterday was booked into coronaprøver.dk in Aarhus:
- It is critical to get tested as many people as possible right now, so we can get an overview of where the infection is. It is a waste of a test time, when no one is coming.
- Our call is, therefore, that you only need to book a time if you want to be tested and show up, says Per Sabro Nielsen, to TV2 ØSTJYLLAND.
From Friday to Saturday there were 79 new infections in the city of Aarhus, and the high smittetal has greatly put pressure on testenhederne in the central denmark Region – particularly in Aarhus.
It has got the region to expand testcentrenes hours, while the north denmark Region, Region of southern denmark and the Capital Region have sent all available testpersonale and equipment to Aarhus.
at the same time, the region has more mobile test units, which drive around and can test in different areas. Saturday had the Region Midtjylland, among other things, been running a mobile testing center to Rosenhøj in Viby, and it drew long queues.
Per Sabro Nielsen think that the pictures of the long queues to the mobile test units may contribute to misunderstandings among those who have booked in advance are:
- You must not stand in the queue, if you have booked time to testcentrene. You can just avoid the long waiting time in the queue, if you have booked time on the coronaprøver.dk, he says to TV2 ØSTJYLLAND.
You can book time for a test COVID-19 on www.coronaprøver.dk. With nemID, you can see where and when you can get a testaftale to the foot or in the car.
