It is only towards the end of a news e-mail from the Statens Serum Institut that it suddenly becomes clear that you are sitting and reading some of the last words from an employee who during the first half of the epidemic with corona was one of the most central people as a top adviser for the government: Epidemiologist Kåre Mølbak.
He has been pretty quiet in public since it was announced two months ago that he will resign in early 2021 as the professional director of infection preparedness at SSI. The new top manager, Henrik Ullum, has – assisted by department head Tyra Grove Krause – taken over Mølbak’s place at press conferences, and it is now the two who sign SSI externally and explain how the ‘epidemic control’ is ensured.
The email contains the latest issue of the weekly EPI-NEWS and is about the pandemic. It is signed ‘K. Mølbak, the infection contingency ‘- even with parentheses around, which very well expresses that Mølbak has never wanted to make himself the center.
“And with these words I have written my last EPI-NEWS”, it says as an introduction to the last section, where Mølbak just comes with a farewell salute, which we return to. We refer below to some key points from Mølbak’s text, which review the epidemic from the beginning to now, and which also take a look ahead.
