Parties want figures on infection detection forth after criticism


The Danish Agency for Patient Safety will not provide access to figures on infection detection that have been criticized.

It arouses criticism from several parties in the Folketing that the Danish Agency for Patient Safety has refused to disclose figures on the detection of infection in coronary heart disease.

It writes Berlingske. The newspaper has tried in vain to get the agency to hand out the latest figures for the infection detection.

– Of course you have to be open about those numbers. It is fair and reasonable that the public can follow the effort, says health spokeswoman Liselott Blixt (DF).

She will discuss the matter in the Folketing’s covid-19 follow-up group.

Shortly before Christmas, the Danish Agency for Patient Safety sent figures to Berlingske, which showed that the detection of infection in Denmark had not a single day in December reached the goal set by the government. The goal is to contact 3,000 infected with covid-19 daily.

Many citizens were first contacted by the infection detection, several days after they had been diagnosed with coronavirus.

This led to great criticism from other professionals at the time.

Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke (S) therefore started work to find out how infection detection can be improved.

Several people have been employed by the Danish Agency for Patient Safety for the detection of infection. At the same time, the target has been raised to contact 5,000 infected people a day.

Now Berlingske has been refused by the Danish Agency for Patient Safety to see the latest figures. This surprises health rapporteur Stinus Lindgreen (R).

– It is important for us to keep up with corona management, and infection detection is a crucial part.

“I do not see any good argument that those figures are not available to the public,” he told the newspaper.

The Danish Agency for Patient Safety writes to Berlingske that it requires too many resources to make the relevant data extracts from the infection detection.

– Establishing a general overview in the form of, for example, data extracts is a task that goes beyond few and simple commands, as it requires the design of new database extracts, the agency writes.
