Figures for student absence will not be clear until Wednesday. Health councilor Robert Steen (Labor Party) tells NTB that he expects a contagion after the mass testing in schools and kindergartens last day:

– We can not hand out tens of thousands of tests in the belief that it will not have any effect, says the health council, who points out that infection rates will probably also rise because people return to everyday life after the Christmas holidays.

More than 10,000 kindergarten employees and teaching staff have been infected with corona in the pandemic, writes NTB.
