due To several circumstances, the regions may not love all of the employees within the health service to be tested for the coronavirus.
It is due to temporary supply problems and a large pressure on the capacity, writes the Danish Regions in a press release.
In another press release informs the Region of southern denmark, they will need to temporarily stop the testing of the health workforce due to lack of reagents for testing.
the Reports come after the national board of Health recently updated its guidelines on the management of Covid-19, which is the illness you get of being infected with coronavirus.
In the guidelines, it said that employees in the health service, which handles the critical functions and exhibits light to moderate symptoms of Covid-19, can be provided and, where appropriate, tested for coronaviruses, if the employer and the doctor determines that there is a need for a quick fit for flight.
But because of the situation it may be necessary for a region to give priority to test the danes, who are most seriously ill, and not employees of the health service, care of older people and in the stakes for the socially disadvantaged, who have easy to moderate symptoms.
Chairman of the Danish Regions, Stephanie " Lose (V), find it totally understandable, if you as an employee are concerned and want to be tested.
But she stresses that it is necessary for the health service to use testressourcerne wisely.
- I have full understanding for the employees at both hospitals and nursing homes may feel uncertain and anxious about whether they become infected or can infect others when they are at work.
- however, It is far from all of those who want to be tested, which meet the criteria for the testing of employees, says Stephanie Lose.
At the Region of southern denmark explains that the reagents are in short supply throughout the country.
It is due to the delivery from the manufacturer Roche Diagnostics, which otherwise was made in the view, do not come.
- working feverishly to secure new supplies to the country as soon as possible, write the region in the press release.
