That event is met with increasing controversy.
Because despite a direct recommendation from the government the organizers have decided to go ahead with the event. That means thousands of people going there. Many from abroad, including people from other countries that also have Corona cases.
The organizers say that it is only a recommendation from the authorities - and people are already here anyway...
The PM tonight urged organizers to adhere to the recommendations of the authorities, if for no other reason then at least out of consideration of those who are elderly, weak or ill. And that going ahead could potentially cost lives.
Benedikte's daughter is trainer for the Danish national equestrian team, so she is present. Which I guess is a part of the reason why Benedikte is there as well, and of course also her own huge interest in horses.
- If there new Corona cases as a result of this event I believe Benedikte in particular and the DRK indirectly may get some heat for that.
It does also show that a lot of people don't take the attempts to curb the outbreak serious enough, or rather weigh personal income higher than the common good.
