a total Of 12.675 in Denmark has tested positive for the coronavirus, the latest figures from the Statens Serum Institut.
when Asked about the many tests in the big picture, the cost is worth it, corresponds Stephanie Lose:
- in any case It is a part of Denmark's testing strategy, and the hills, of course, we in the regions, and do everything we can to get tested as many people as possible.
Denmark has today a proactive testing strategy, where all of which exhibit symptoms or have been in contact with an infected are encouraged to submit to the test, which there is ample opportunity for.
But it was not, as coronaepidemien broke out in Denmark.
At the beginning of the epidemic, it was limited to who could get a test, which was the subject of criticism.
Among other things, the world health organisation (WHO) stated several times that this is to control the outbreak, it was important to test as many as possible.
With the passage of time extended the authorities preparedness, so that more could be tested. And today it can all then be tested on either the hospitals or in the white testtelte.
