After the first Danish case of coronavirus, COVID-19, the Danish health authorities underline that there still is a low risk of widespread infection in Denmark. At the same time, the Danish health service is well equipped to deal with patients with infectious diseases.

- After the development in Italy over the weekend, we had expected to see cases of COVID-19 in Denmark soon, so we are not surprised, and we must expect to see more cases in the coming days and weeks. But our strategy is to contain the spread of infection in Denmark. We do this by quickly diagnosing COVID-19 and by treating in isolation, while also detecting and managing people who have had close contact with the infected so that they can quarantine, says Søren Brostrøm, Director of The National Board of Health.
