Many people in Skåne want to be tested for antibodies
– There is a great deal of interest in Skåne, but there are still plenty of times available, says Maria Wogensen at Region Skåne's press office.
In Kristianstad there are four places (see Facts) where you can make an appointment to be tested. One of them is at Östra Storgatan 35, where Medicals and Doktor.se carry out their tests.
– We've had to closed down our booking system for today. There have been too many people wanting to make an appointment, says Resa Allahyari.
The clinic reckons on being able to carry out 200 test per day. Four nurses will do the tests.
””I'd no idea what it was. The specialist didn't recognise it. It was my parents who had read about ”corona toes””Christian Svensson
Christian Svensson has made an appointment. He developed what is known as a ”corona toe” at the end of March but has otherwise been in good health.
On his mobile phone he shows us a picture of a toe with a red rash and a yellowish blister.
– I'd no idea what it was. The specialist didn't recognise it. It was my parents who had read about ”corona toes”, he said.
Now he is hoping that the test will show that he has antibodies.
– It would be a good thing, but I don't intend to make any big changes in what I do. I won't visit elderly people more than necessary, and I'll continue to keep my distance.
He will get the result of his test in 6 to 10 days.
