The Defence League will not compensate the treatment costs related to sickness or, for instance, the loss of income due to quarantine.

At the same time, a valid health insurance is strictly recommended so that treatment options are ensured upon infection.

Should a participant develop permanent health damage or die due to what will later be proven to be the coronavirus, the case will be handled separately -- the Minister of Defence will decide whether there will be compensation or not.

The members of the Defence League/Women's Voluntary Defence Organization who have participated in the emergency situation in the framework of professional assistance have the possibility of getting tested, if necessary.
