Coronasmitten flourished recently up in Silkeborg, denmark. Particularly in the area of housing by Resedavej there was lokalsmitte, and mundbind is already a requirement in public transport in the city.
A temporary test facility is now established in the middle of the area, and the everyday life of the residents has rapidly closed in.
Jeanette Juul Andersen lives in an apartment in the residential area with her husband and four children. She had to keep the children at home as they had been in contact with another infected child, and they may all be tested.
An experience she describes as horrible.

The small apartment is located in the beginning of the residential quarter by Resedavej. A white fan is placed in the middle of the living room, and the door to the balcony stands open. The family's laundry hang in a row on a white dress boy. Outside of summer the sound of summer over the green area between the neighbourhood unit.

- I was in tears on the way home. I think it was absolutely terrible, she says.
the Children were not meeting in the institutions, because they had played with a child, who was tested positive, and therefore they should all be tested.
There is a temporary test centre right next to the apartment, but there could only the adults and not the children be tested.
Why should your family instead, all the way to the drive-in testcentret at the regional hospital in Viborg.
- It just does not work with small children. I felt really pressured into having to hold my son, and open his mouth. He would, of course, not. They come to the car with the stick, and so do you expect that small children just open your mouth. They are not always. So it was not a nice experience, says the mother.

The more normal life after coronanedlukningen got a small retreat after the rise of the infected train to Silkeborg. The family had to isolate themselves again in a little while, until they got answers on the test, which was not an easy exercise in an apartment.
- We've been half isolated here. It is hard in an apartment. I would wish that I lived in a house with a garden and a trampoline. The kids are bored and it is hot. You take more out, because there is not much to do in an apartment. People live closer here.
All tests were luckily negative.

the Children's father is love. The neighbors are a somali family. But Jeanette does not think that ethnicity is the crucial in relation to the spread of infection.
- I know of many somalis, and I do not think that they take less space than all kinds of other nationalities do.
She describes that the neighbors have a larger family, and of course, there is a greater risk that more will be infected if one of them gets it. But she does not think that they are less able to follow the guidelines.
- I think the talk about ethnicity is a sin. It goes to my somali friends really. But that's how it is. They are used to it. If there is poverty, then you have to find some to blame. If there are disasters, you have to find some. It is really too bad.
