On October 31, Denmark Broadcasting and Television reported that the Denmark government is introducing a nationwide early warning system, which will serve as the basis for Denmark society’s future efforts to combat the new crown pneumonia epidemic.
The early warning system shows the current level of risk, if the virus infection increases, what measures the government will need to take.
Health Minister Magnus Hernik said at a press conference that the authorities aimed to make it easier for citizens to see the epidemic situation and divided the entire early warning system into five levels.
At present, society is at level 3, which means that “widespread social viral infections may rapidly increase the infection rate.” Using the new early warning system, the authorities will assess the risk level of the epidemic throughout the country every week.
- Risk level 1: The local infection rate of the virus is low, and there is a possibility of outbreak.
- Risk level 2: The virus spreads locally and regionally.
- Risk level 3: Widespread social viral infections may accelerate the infection rate.
- Risk level 4: Widespread social virus infection, initial pressure on hospital capacity.
- Risk level 5: Widespread social viral infection, the risk of exceeding the hospital’s treatment capacity.
