the Government has put the representative study of coronasmittens development of the population at the break.
It shows a note from the Statens Serum Institut (SSI), writes Politiken Friday.
17. april, the government concluded an agreement with political parties to extend the first phase of the reopening.
Here it was written that 'there must be tested in a representative sample of the population, so the development can be followed'.
the Decision to put the investigation on the break is 'a clear breach of the political agreement', considers the Unity sundhedsordfører, Peder Hvelplund.
- It is completely unacceptable. It is a part of the political agreement, and therefore we must, of course, invited to discussions in aftalekredsen, before changing the political agreement, says Peder Hvelplund to Politiken.
- This is the cornerstone of the whole of the testing strategy, and it is a very unfortunate time to stop the representative monitoring of the infection. Right now the open society with high speed, like we could be facing a second wave of the epidemic, then we need to know how widespread the infection is.
the Reason for the break is that many of the citizens, who were summoned to the coronatest not met up. The proportion of those in attendance is, according to the newspaper, Politiken, has fallen continuously, and in the latest call for the investigation 31. may is only 12.9 percent showed up.
a Professor at the national university hospital Jens Lundgren hope that the authorities quickly resumes stikprøveundersøgelserne, even if the infection is on the back burner in Denmark right now.
- I just want to remind you that the problem in the beginning of the epidemic was precisely that we have not discovered the spread of infection before it was too late. So it is a bad idea to sit back, because it is peacetime. Representative surveys are the most central tool, we have, to catch the problems before it is too late.
the Politiken newspaper has tried in vain to get a comment from health minister Magnus Heunicke (S).
