The Radicals miss the long-term corona direction from the government

In eight days, the restrictions imposed by the government before Christmas to curb covid-19 infection will expire. But neither in the short nor the long run has the government told what is to happen.

This causes the support party The Radicals to call on the government to be much more open about what it thinks about the continued restrictions and the reopening.

“I think there is a need for more clarity and fewer gloomy announcements. We need a little realistic optimism. “

»Mostly because the strongest weapon is the Danes’ common sense. That is what we have been through in the last year. “

“We can all endure a little longer if we get some visibility,” says political leader Sofie Carsten Nielsen.

Last year, the reopening was the subject of lengthy negotiations and ended up being divided into four phases, which lasted from April 15 to October. The last part was lost when the covid-19 infection increased again.

Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke (S) has described the process as “Hjallerup Market” and the Liberal Party’s health spokesman, Martin Geertsen, as a “Persian carpet market”.

No party wants to repeat that process and points to an expert group’s bid for an order in the reopening as a good starting point.

“The government will have to openly present what it does with thoughts of reopening based on that expert recommendation. An offer we must then deal with politically. “

“But the government cannot shout from the Folketing that it makes the process Hjallerup Market, if it does not present a plan itself,” says Sofie Carsten Nielsen and continues:

»If the population and the Folketing can not look further than a week ahead, then the uncertainty and guesswork will be great. And worst of all, people are losing confidence in the basis of political decisions and respect for restrictions. “

At the support party SF, health spokesperson Kirsten Normann agrees that there is a need for more openness from the government.

“It might make sense to point out what needs to be opened when there is room for it,” she says.

“We need to tell what we do and what goal we need to achieve by doing it. That is an important signal. “

“If restrictions are logical for people, then they follow them. It has been unique that people have been involved in doing what made sense. But of course they also get tired of it if they can’t see the point, “she says.
