The government has announced that everyone displaying symptoms of the coronavirus will be tested.

The health minister, Magnus Heunicke, stated that anyone showing symptoms should get in touch with their general practitioner (GP) in order to be tested as soon as possible.

Heunicke also revealed that the white field tents that have popped up across Denmark are erected as part of the gradual reopening process in Denmark and increased testing. Right now the tents are in a pilot phase.
