06.-07.06.2020 - Indoor sports, fitness centres and swimming pools can reopen from Monday.

TODAY'S BULLETS

  1. All indoor sports clubs, organisations, facilities, as well as rooms where sport and free time activities are conducted, such as playlands, arcades, waterparks, indoor swimming pools and fitness centres, are allowed to reopen from the 8th of June. Guidelines will enter into place, which is expected to come out during the Monday.

  2. The ban on public assembly’s limit of people is raised Monday the 8th of June from 10 to 50 people.

  3. The traditional student wagon-trips is recommended to have fewer visits, and shorter durations of the visits, according to guidelines from the Ministry of Children and Education. The guidelines are also mentioning that an extra – sober – person can come onboard the trip, apart from the class and the driver. This person can handle situations where a young might develop symptoms or needs to finish the trip before time.

  4. SIRI’s office in Copenhagen is reopening Monday the 8th of June for personal appointments. Appointments can be booked here.

  5. A cure against coronavirus is allegedly close, according to the British-Swedish medical concern AstraZeneca. The company explains that the cure is based on cloned antibodies, specifically a combination of two antibodies that are injected to support the immune system’s own response to the coronavirus. The treatment is more expensive to develop than a vaccine, and it is therefore particularly aimed at elderly and weakened people, whose bodies would have difficulties accepting a vaccine.

POLITICS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • All indoor sports clubs, organisations, facilities, as well as rooms where sport and free time activities are conducted, such as playlands, arcades, waterparks, indoor swimming pools and fitness centres, are allowed to reopen from the 8th of June. Guidelines will enter into place, which is expected to come out during the Monday. This was announced by all the parties in a public announcement Friday evening. This is an extension of phase 3, which enters into effect on the 8th of June.

  • The ban on public assembly’s limit of people is raised Monday the 8th of June from 10 to 50 people, announces the Ministry of Health and the Elderly the night to Monday.

  • As part of the decision to expand on phase 3, has the government also proposed a plan for relaxations of the ban on public assembly, but these haven’t been announced to have been agreed upon yet! As previously mentioned, this plan contains three stages:

- Stage 1 will enter into effect the 8th of June and will include that the ban on public assembly’s limit on people is raised to 50 people (which is now official). Furthermore, will all events where the participants are in general seated be allowed to have more participants, up to 500 people. This includes e.g. weddings, a football match as well as a general assembly in a conference centre.

- Stage 2 will enter into effect the 8th of July where the limit of the ban on public assembly will be raised to 100 people.

- Finally, state 3 will enter into effect the 8th of August and will include another raise to the ban on public assembly to 200 people for some organisers/events, whereas those who are not included will stay have a maximum of 100 people.

  • The traditional student wagon-trips is recommended to have fewer visits, and shorter durations of the visits, according to guidelines from the Ministry of Children and Education. The guidelines also highlight that it should be taken into consideration if some families don’t want visits, but who instead have the possibility to celebrate the young people on the route in another way. The guidelines are also mentioning that an extra – sober – person can come onboard the trip, apart from the class and the driver. This is to increase the feeling of safety for the young people, so the person can handle situations where a young might develop symptoms or needs to finish the trip before time.

  • SIRI’s office in Copenhagen is reopening Monday the 8th of June for personal appointments. Appointments can be booked here.

  • The European Commission has suggested that the EU’s budget of the health-area should grow with 2.000 % - twentyfold. The Danish government is ready to support this increase, says the Ministry of Health in a note that has been sent to the political spokesmen on health in the parties in the Parliament. De Radikale is wondering about that the government wants to be part of a health program, but not be part of the loan that is supposed to finance it. Here they are referring to the decision of Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands and Austria to reject the proposal of particularly France and Germany of a new recovery fund of 5.600 billion kroner, where the majority must be paid out as grants to the countries that are hit hardest.

HEALTH-RELATED INFORMATION

  • 11.948 have tested positive, 73 more than Friday.

  • 75 are hospitalised with corona-virus, 10 less than Friday.

  • Of those 75 are 15 in intensive care, 2 less than Friday.

  • Of those 15 are 9 in respirators, 1 less than Friday.

  • 589 Corona-infected residents in Denmark have died, 3 more than Friday.

  • 579.400 have been tested for corona-virus (+16.495) with 11.948 positives (2.06 % positives), a drop of 0.05 %-point from Friday.

  • 10.755 are reported as healthy again, after having been diagnosed with coronavirus, 102 more than Friday.

  • A cure against coronavirus is allegedly close, according to the British-Swedish medical concern AstraZeneca. The company explains that the cure is based on cloned antibodies, specifically a combination of two antibodies that are injected to support the immune system’s own response to the coronavirus. The treatment is more expensive to develop than a vaccine, and it is therefore particularly aimed at elderly and weakened people, whose bodies would have difficulties accepting a vaccine. The company signed last week an agreement with the non-profit organisation Cepi, which, among others, the Bill & Melinda Gates Fund is behind. This agreement involves a cooperation to develop 300 million globally accessible doses of a corona-vaccine, which the Jenner-institute at Oxford University is working on. This vaccine is already being produced to ensure that it can become accessible in the fall, in case the vaccine is approved by the authorities.

OTHER INFORMATION

  • We must get used to that the society will shut down and reopen several times over the next months or even years, according to professor in infectious medicine at Rigshospitalet, Jens Lundgren: “We must get used to that we, over the next months and maybe years, will be talking about shutting down and reopening again as two sides of the situation. We will experience situations in a fitness centre or elsewhere, where there will be an infection spread that leads to shutting down the institution in question. We have already seen examples of this. Instead of only talking about reopening, we must talk about how society functions in the best way possible,” he says.
