Danish Thor will be in the outback: - It is more secure out here

The 38-year-old Danish adventurer Thor F. Jensen has chosen to be in the australian outback during the coronapandemien.

- I is in the city of Alice Springs, situated in the middle of the australian continent, and there are no major cities in a radius of 1,300 km - just desert, tells Thor to Ekstra Bladet.

He traveled to Australia on 24. February on a three months tourist visa, and now he does not know, when he comes home again.

the Prime minister invited the danes to come home, but it seems more safe to be out here instead of travelling through various airports and pick the disease up on the road, says Thor.

There are over 30 degrees in Alice Springs right now, and so far, the city is not affected by the coronatilfælde. There has only been one confirmed smittetilfælde throughout the state, the Northern Territory, and it is in the city of Darwin, 1600 km to the north.

out Here we are experiencing not the same chaos as in large cities; Sydney and Melbourne, where many dagligvarebutikkers shelves are empty. In the major towns supermarkets are opened an hour extra in the morning, so retirees and others with special needs can act before the masses come, and the news channels are reporting that sales are greater than the christmas sales, says Thor, which nevertheless can feel that the pandemic presses itself also in one of the remotest corners of the Earth, which is the access point for many tourists, before they inspect one of the country's biggest attractions, Uluru.

- There were very few tourists on the plane to Alice Springs, and I can also see it in the way that there is a lack of håndsprit and masks, like you can only buy one bag of rice á five pounds in the supermarket.

- It is also the main concern; that the goods stops to get to Alice Springs, say, Thor, which, however, has a background as an instructor in outdoor pursuits and survival, and therefore sees itself well equipped to cope without fresh supplies.

- My girlfriend and I have a stockpile that can keep us alive in a month's time. In addition, I have bought the seeds, soil and fertilizers so we can grow vegetables. As well as wire, if we go out and set snares, The last is just for an emergency, but you can catch the monitor lizards and småøgler, as you can eat, tells Thor.

on Tuesday evening on prime minister Mette Frederiksen's press conference got danes abroad once again, to know that they must hurry home to Denmark, for windows the world over are about to close in.

- There are danes that will beaches in the world. They need to find a good place to be. So we find a way to get you home when this is over, said Erik Brøgger from the Ministry of foreign affairs at the press conference.

And it may very well be the solution for Thor F. Jensen.

- And if my tourist visa to expire, can I travel to Papua New Guinea and travel back to Australia afterwards. The only problem with it is that I must be in isolation by the arrival to Australia again, but it is important just to be positive, " says Thor.
