The young doctor association Yngre Læger has reached out to Denmark and urged everyone to stay at home.
In a Twitter post today, Yngre Læger shared an image of doctors at Bispebjerg Hospital holding up posters with the words:
“We stay here for you. Please stay home for us!”
Yngre Læger represents about 13,000 doctors across Denmark.
Don’t want another Italy
The message is for the Danes to understand that the chain of infection won’t be broken unless they stay at home and avoid contact with others.
“We have a very difficult and risky role as health workers in the middle of a pandemic, but we are ready to rise to the occasion,” Jakob Friis Schmidt, a doctor specialising in anesthesiology, told TV2 News.
“But we really want citizens to do us a favour and stay at home so we don’t get to a situation like in Italy.”
