Jakob Tage Ramlyng, employed by Danish television station TV2, had been on a skiing holiday in Chiesa, in the province of Sondrio in northern Italy. Reports from Denmark confirm he tested positive for coronavirus covid-19 upon returning home.
The reporter has now broken the silence on his reaction to hearing that he had been infected. It’s thought he is the first person in Denmark to contract coronavirus.
“Of course we are deeply alarmed that what we thought was highly unlikely has become our reality,” he wrote on Facebook, as per Danish station TV2.
“My wife and I got a shock last night at 2:15 a.m. when a doctor from Roskilde Hospital announced that I had tested positive for coronavirus as the first person in Denmark.”
