Reopening untouched by several finds of South African variety


It does not affect Monday’s partial reopening of schools and shops that several cases of a South African corona variant have been found in Copenhagen’s Northwest district.

This is what Anette Lykke Petri, director of the Danish Agency for Patient Safety, says.

“Not as the picture looks now,” she says after it emerged on Friday that infected people had been found in two households. How many infected there are, she does not want to answer.

Can it happen if there are many cases?

“Then the situation is different and then we have to reconsider. But fortunately there are relatively few cases of the variant in Denmark, and they are geographically very widespread – just except in the Northwest, “says Anette Lykke Petri.

Have set doorbells

According to Anette Lykke Petri, there is no immediate sign that there has been a greater spread in the local area.

“There is nothing to suggest that in our interviews. But we have just gone out now with a massive test effort, where the local area is encouraged to test, to find out if there has been further infection, “she says.

She says that doorbells have been sounded in the area calling for tests, flyers have been handed out, and text messages are also being sent to about 700 people who live in the immediate area.

“We have been testing for the past two days, and we will continue to do so this weekend. But we can not rule out that some will not be tested until next week or the week after. “

“So, in theory, it may take some time before we can say that there have been no more cases,” says Anette Lykke Petri.
