People with mild COVID-19 symptoms can book their own test

From today, potential coronavirus patients showing mild symptoms no longer need to book a time through their GPs

The health authorities have made it easier for those showing mild symptoms to be tested for COVID-19.

Moments ago, the Sundhedstyrelsenhealth authority revealed that from today, people living in Denmark can book their own test and avoid being referred by their GPs.

Furthermore, a number of new clinics will be established for patients who require swift testing.

“If you don’t feel ill to the extent that you need to speak with your GP, you can now book a time yourself via to see whether you are infected,” said Helene Probst, the deputy head of Sundhedstyrelsen.

Probst said it was important to stay home and isolate yourself – even if you don’t feel too ill – and wait for your test results.
