On the basis of advice from the expert group of Statens Serum Institut (SSI) as well as the economic expert group, the parties in the Danish parliament have agree on phase 2 of the reopening. In week 20, the expert group under SSI will make updated calculations. If the prerequisites for the second phase of reopening change as a result, it is discussed between the parties.
The Danes have complied with the authorities' guidelines on distance, hygiene, et cetera. Therefore, it is now possible to continue the gradual opening of Denmark.
In addition, the reopening rests on five elements:
# An offensive testing strategy with testing in both a health track and a community track, infection detection and isolation of infected. Representative testing of the population is carried out at fixed time intervals and on the basis of a clear plan.
# Use of protective equipment, including to protect the vulnerable groups
# Physical distance guidelines by health authorities
# Health authorities guidelines on good hygiene
# Avoid super-proliferation
