Hi everyone. I just want to announce a special moment for me with this webpage.


You guys have now read my summaries more than 100.000 times in total!


On average you've been 1275 people who have been reading the summaries, with an all-time high of 3.316 people reading the summary from the 9th of June.


I am very honoured that you guys appreciate this page so much. I never thought I would get to this point. Thank you so much, and please don't hesitate to let me know whether I can help you, or ask me if you need things clarified.


I will soon begin to transform the webpage a bit, removing a few things that aren't used anymore, and maybe adding a "Q&A" section to some of the questions you guys ask the most, as well as links to various websites that can help you.


Thanks for everything!

TODAY'S BULLETS

  1. The requirement of having a test done no later than 72 hours before entering Denmark has been eased for sweethearts, grandparents etc. living in third countries. It is enough filling out a declaration that it hasn’t been possible to get the test done within 72 hours. The person entering Denmark then promises to enter 14 days of self-isolation upon arrival. If the person takes a test within 24 hours of arriving in Denmark, and there's a negative result, can the isolation period end earlier. There’s a testing facility in Copenhagen Airport. The declaration can be found here.

  2. After some confusion about whether Swedes from southern Sweden living in Skåne, Halland or Blekinge could enter Denmark without the need of a negative corona-test for a one-day trip, it has now been made clear – a negative test must have been made before entering Denmark, if Swedes want to enter without a worthy purpose, as long as the three regions are considered quarantine areas, due to the high contact number in the regions. Many Swedes entered Denmark Saturday, particularly in Helsingør, by promising to take a test within 24 hours of arriving - and then returning the same day to Sweden, never actually taking the test.

  3. The case of the useless respirators that was sent to Italy in April has now caused ‘noses’ (reprimands) to three ministers, as the Parliament find the entire case reprehensible. The new ministers to receive a nose is the Minister of Defense, Trine Bramsen (S) as well as the Minister of Health, Magnus Heunicke (S). The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jeppe Kofod (S), has received a nose previously.

  4. The city council in Hillerød municipality will reward all public employees employed by the municipality for their efforts during the corona-crisis, by giving them a bouquet of flowers and a check to all working places with an amount corresponding to 100 kroner per employee.

  5. A new Danish study shows that medicine against elevated blood pressure doesn’t lead to a higher risk of becoming infected with coronavirus, nor that it will lead to a worse sickness spell if infected.

If the person takes a test within 24 hours of arriving in Denmark, and there's a negative result, can the isolation period end earlier. There’s a testing facility in Copenhagen Airport. The declaration can be found here. Depending on what status one is entering with there will be a need for further documentation. Find out what you need here, or ask me.

The total cost of this scheme will be 440.000 kroner. Mayor Kirsten Jensen (S) says: ”The proposal is something I’ve been talking to the direction about since there’s many who have had to work under different terms than they have been used to. What do you then do, when you’ve been in an extraordinary situation for so many weeks. We then came up with the idea of making a little symbolic gesture of appreciation.

  • A donor conference arranged by the EU Saturday has collected 6.15 billion Euro or 46 billion kroner. The money will go to the development of treatments and vaccines against coronavirus. The conference had debates and speeches from academics and leading European politicians, such as the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the President of France, Emmanuel Macron. Afterwards was there a virtual concert with participation of, among others, Justin Bieber.

This is supposed to give the young people the possibility to join one of these two, so they can have more options in the future.

  • Around 300 Danes are still stranded abroad, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There’s currently only being made statistics on Danes in India, Pakistan, Iraq and Columbia.

OTHER INFORMATION

  • 1.700 Danish SAS-employees will be fired Monday, as part of the big round of firings which SAS is going through with. A total of 5.000 employees worldwide will be let go.

  • Relatively few people have become unemployed as a result of bankruptcies due to the corona-crisis, according to the organisation Finance Denmark. So far has around 1800 companies declared themselves bankrupt, or around 122 per week, since the outbreak began in March, with 5.800 employees. This is fewer than the weekly bankruptcies during the economical recovery from 2013-2020. The main reason, according to the organisation, is the compensation schemes from the state, as well as support from the financial institutions.

  • The first Danish corona-exposition has opened at Holstebro Museum. Local citizens have contributed with everything from visors, hand sanitizers, facial masks, pearl plates, knitting equipment, baking articles and takeaway boxes. The exposition with the title “Quarantine” can be visited until the 13th of December 2020.

  • A man has been charged for having violated the assembly ban. He was responsible for having arranged a ‘pirate party’ at Kalvebod Brygge in Copenhagen. The police discovered the party coincidentally at 2:30, where most people were headed home. Therefore we don’t know exactly how many who have been participating. The man is now facing a fine of 2.500 kroner.
