Denmark will lift all remaining corona restrictions this month. Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen is expected to announce this on Wednesday, the Jyllands-Posten newspaper writes. However, the government has yet to confirm that.
Denmark, which has more than 5 million inhabitants, has seen the number of corona infections rise rapidly in recent weeks. However, the authorities had already relaxed their corona measures about two weeks ago. Then, for example, cinemas and museums could open their doors again. However, other rules remained in effect. For example, catering businesses still have to deal with adjusted opening hours.
According to newspaper sources, Frederiksen will announce at a press conference on Wednesday evening that the remaining measures will also expire. That decision would follow new recommendations from top medical advisers. They also believe that Covid-19 should no longer be referred to as a condition that threatens society.
Denmark reported about 40,000 new corona cases on Monday. Despite the rapid increase in the number of infections, the pressure on the intensive care departments of hospitals is decreasing. There were 82 corona patients there on 6 January. On Monday, there were still 43 patients with the coronavirus.
