Danish hospitals run the risk of running out of håndsprit and face masks

the Danish medicines agency is now calling on everyone to save as much as possible on protective equipment as håndsprit, face masks, respirators and visors.

Otherwise, the health sector is running out of the protection equipment required, inform the Danish medicines agency in a press release.

- We are taking the situation very seriously, and we are working non stop seven days a week to provide protective equipment to the Danish health care system, says the Danish medicines agency director Thomas Senderovitz.

Although one should try to save, one should not compromise on security, stresses the agency, at the same time.

- We need to save protection equipment required as much as we possibly can without compromising safety.

- Otherwise we run the risk that the doctors, nurses and all the others in the front line will be missing. It is critically important that we do everything we can to prevent it from happening, " Thomas Senderovitz in the press release.

the Danish medicines agency is currently in contact with Danish companies in order to procure more protective equipment from abroad, which can be transported quickly to Denmark, and to spur further production of protective equipment at home.

the Risk of a lack of protective equipment, among other things, that health workers, particularly older workers, may be infected and thus must be quarantined.

Use water and soap rather than håndsprit, if you can, it sounds from the Danish medicines agency. It is equally as effective, and on the way saves on håndspritten.
