While the government and the parliamentary parties are discussing opportunities for reopening locally and regionally, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen (S) hopes that the next cautious step can soon be taken.
She states this in a written comment to Ritzau.
– We are considering, among other things, regional and local reopens and increased use of tests. All this is also being discussed with the parliamentary parties, and I am hopeful that we can take the next cautious step within the next few weeks, says the Prime Minister.
She mentions that the winter is soon over and that the infection rates are again relatively low.
– Now spring is on its way and the vaccines are being rolled out. Therefore, it is very natural that we now discuss how we can phase out the restrictions in a sound and prudent way, she says.
The Prime Minister is responding to the open letter that the party leaders in the blue bloc published earlier today .
They want the government to ‘think better and more creative thoughts than calculations on a few major reopening scenarios, as we have seen so far’, reads the letter, which the Conservatives’ chairman, Søren Pape Poulsen, has shared on Twitter.
Health Minister Magnus Heunicke (S) said yesterday that experts are currently counting on the effect of regional reopening.
