Reject the director's coronaråd: Children are allowed to play together

the Invitation was not to be mistaken as medical director of the State Serum Institute, Kåre Mølbak on Thursday evening visited the DR programme 'Doctor's Table'.

Children should NOT play together. Even though they do not show any symptoms of the corona.

- They should listen to what our prime minister and the queen have said. You must keep a distance - and it makes children not. So therefore, you have to cancel legeaftalerne, said Kåre Mølbak.

Thus, having renounced allegiance to he past recommendations from the national board of Health's director, Søren Brostrøm - namely, that healthy children can easily play with the healthy children.

But it was Kåre Mølbak never have said, now you have to understand at the Danish Health and medicines authority.

In an email to Ekstra Bladet writes the national board of Health press office on Friday morning, to the Statens Serum Institut 'of course,' is in line with the Danish Health and medicines authority.

'It is a mistake from the Statens Serum institut's page. The hills course 100 percent up on the national board of Health recommendations', it says in the email.

And, highlights the national board of Health, Kåre Mølbak will no longer come up with their own recommendations.

'You may want to contact them or Kåre Mølbak, which will explain that they, of course, backs up the SSTs (national ed.) recommendations, which are still that healthy children should play with healthy children, in small groups of two to three pcs'.

Ekstra Bladet has asked Kåre Mølbak, what is up and down in the recommendations, and whether he still believes what he said on Thursday evening.

In an email to Ekstra Bladet he writes that parents need to rethink play dates for his children, because healthy children can also be carriers.

'There is nobody that prohibits the able-bodied children to play together, and if you're doing a playdate should you adhere to the advice which the Danish health and medicines authority has prepared. It will say that the game should be done outside the agreement must be short, the kids must keep a distance and so they must be healthy', writes Kåre Mølbak and adds:

'Healthy children may, however, in rare cases, carry the virus and infection, and children can have a hard time keeping distance in a good breeze, so therefore one can also consider whether there may be another way to keep his child occupied than at a playdate.'

Prime minister Mette Frederiksen (S) volunteered in the last week out, to schools, day-care facilities and educational institutions were shut down in 14 days from Monday of this week. Health authorities have not yet any clear answer on when parents can send their children to school again.

Many parents have in recent days written to the spare Blade to hear, whether it is justifiable to send her children out in the open and burn the gunpowder together with their playmates.

the latest figures from The Statens Serum Institute shows that a total of 12 children under ten years of age is found to be contaminated with corona. Three children have been or are hospitalized, but none has at present a severe infection.

Ekstra Bladet has tried to get a detailed comment from Kåre Mølbak, but neither he nor the State Serum Institute is at the time of writing returned to our requests. We are following the case.
