National Board Of Health: Homework And Long Weekends Are Part Of The Corona Toolbox

National Board of Health

An extra-long weekend or a longer holiday than planned.

These may be some of the measures that can be taken to contain the infection with coronavirus, says Søren Brostrøm, director of the National Board of Health at today’s press conference with the latest news about coronavirus in Denmark.

– There are a lot of initiatives in the toolbox for health authorities and across sectors that can be further used to limit contact with each other, which can promote infection.

– Increased use of homework and increased use of homeschooling are some of the things in the toolbox. Some of what you can also look at are longer holidays and extended weekends, says Søren Brostrøm.

He says that the National Board of Health is currently keeping a close eye on what has been done in Italy and what the effects are of it.

About 16 million Italians live in quarantined areas, and all schools are closed down right now.

Italy is the country in Europe most affected by coronavirus.

The press conference did not show how the possible “extra free” should be organized in practice.

Expected with more infected

At the time of writing, there are a total of 90 infected with corona in this country.

Six of them are currently hospitalized.

And that more and more infected people are expected at all times, Søren Brostrøm says.

– We said that last week was an opportunity. That we are standing here today does not get behind me, says the director of the National Board of Health.

Right now, the Foreign Ministry recommends travel to the province of Hubei in China and to the regions of Piedmont, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, the Aosta Valley, Veneto and Marche in Italy.

The rest of the world must be “extra careful” to travel to.

But also in relation to these recommendations, we can expect changes, according to Erik Brøgger Rasmussen, director of organization and citizen service in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

– I can almost certainly say that we will be changing travel guides within the next few days. That is pretty much given the development we are seeing.

What this really means is still unknown.

School closed due to infection

770 people in Denmark have just been quarantined.

Earlier today, it was revealed that people who were at the Søpavillonen in Copenhagen on Thursday should stay home for 14 days.

That’s because one person who was at the scene on Thursday has been found to be infected with coronavirus.

He is now in isolation.

Rysensteen Gymnasium in Copenhagen is temporarily closed because two cases of infection have been discovered at the school.

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen last week called for events with more than 1,000 participants to be canceled or postponed, and kisses, hugs and handshakes are being dropped.

At the press day it was stated that a similar meeting will be held every day from now on, where relevant authorities can update with the latest news about the corona virus in Denmark.
