The rapid spread of the omicron variant of coronavirus continues to cause new infections to skyrocket in Denmark and Iceland. Both countries reported new highs on Monday. In Denmark, 16,164 coronavirus cases were registered within 24 hours. The 7-day incidence is 1,621.

Iceland also reported a record number of new infections. Within 24 hours, 672 infections were recorded. Until mid-December, Icelandic authorities had recorded fewer than 200 new cases per day. Prior to the spread of the Omicron variant, Denmark and Iceland had had some of the lowest infection rates in Europe.

Although hospitalizations are increasing in Denmark, they are below the level of the January CoV wave, which is attributed mainly to protection through vaccination. Studies suggest that Omicron causes milder disease courses than previous variants of coronavirus. Because of the increase in CoV numbers in the wake of the Omicron wave, Denmark had closed cultural institutions and restricted the opening hours of bars and restaurants in mid-December.
