Despite continuing high numbers of new infections, virtually all Corona restrictions will fall away in Denmark on Tuesday. Mouth-nose protection will then no longer have to be worn in the northern EU country. Also proof of vaccinations, recoveries, and negative tests per Corona passport is no longer necessary. Large events can go ahead unhindered. Nightlife is also allowed to take place again. Covid-19 is no longer classified as a “socially critical disease.”
In September of last year, Denmark had already completely abandoned the restrictions. But then new infection figures rose again, so they were gradually reintroduced. Today, the EU country has a daily number of new infections in the mid-five digits – highs that were hard to imagine before the emergence of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus in November.
However, these numbers have not impacted intensive care units as much as feared. Milder disease courses in Omicron infections and high vaccination numbers are the main reasons why the Danes decided to relax comprehensively. Isolated entry rules, especially for the unvaccinated, remain the only restrictions.
