Denmark to Lift All COVID-19 Restrictions by Sept 10

Denmark’s health ministry announced that it will lift all its remaining COVID-19 restrictions by 10 September after deeming the virus as “no longer a critical threat to society” because of their high vaccination rates.

“The epidemic is under control, we have record vaccination levels. That is why we can drop the special rules we had to introduce in the fight against COVID-19,” announced health minister, Magnus Heunicke.

Currently, Denmark has vaccinated 4,127,730 of its citizens fully while another 4,392,672 have received at least one dose. 

Heunicke said they would not hesitate to act again once the virus threatens the population. 

According to Worldometers, Denmark has a total of 342,474 COVID-19 cases, 2,576 deaths, and 326,650 recovered.

Since May 21, all businesses in Denmark except for nightclubs and discotheques were allowed to reopen nationwide and could operate with up to 20 percent of staff on-site.
