The Danish people must get used to being tested for the coronavirus twice a week in connection with the reopening of parts of society, the authorities say.

The Danish government has entered into an agreement with the municipalities and regions on testing groups of people twice a week.

“It is a social contract, where we demand from industries and parts of society that can reopen to test twice a week,” Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke said on Wednesday.

“Either a quick test or a PCR test, and then we can put them into the models we are using,” Heunicke added.

The country will also buy ten million new types of rapid tests, which do not need to be inserted as far up in the nose as older ones. 

Testing should therefore be less uncomfortable.
