As part of Denmark’s aim to increase testing of its general population for the coronavirus, all adults have an opportunity to book a time to be tested this week.

All adults can book a COVID-19 test using their Nem-ID logins at www.coronaprover.dk . They will be tested in one of the white field tents that have popped up across the country recently.

“It is critical that there are no hidden pockets of contagion that can increase the infection rate again. Every infection chain is one too many and could potentially lead to more,” said the health minister, Magnus Heunicke. 

“So if there is the slightest indication that you might have been exposed to COVID-19, you should let yourself be tested.”

Starting with 18-25-year-olds
Any adult not showing symptoms can book a time, while people showing symptoms are urged to contact their own general practitioners to be referred to a test at a hospital.

Today, the test will be available for 600,000 adults in the 18-25 age group.

Meanwhile, the remainder of adults in Denmark will be given the green light in the coming days.
