Denmark Lifts All COVID-19 Restrictions

Denmark lifted all health restrictions after 548 days of curbing the spread of COVID-19 due to its high vaccination rate.

Showing a digital vaccination passport upon entering nightclubs was the last health measure that was waived. 

The Danish government declared that COVID-19 is no longer a “socially-critical” disease, as more than 80% of Denmark’s populace have already received two vaccine jabs. This led to the government easing the restrictions gradually. 

Aarhus University Virology Professor Søren Riis Paludan told the Associated Press, “I wouldn’t say it is too early. We have opened the door but we have also said that we can close it if needed.”

Danish health minister Magnus Heunicke said in August that the pandemic is “under control” but the government will act accordingly once the virus becomes a threat again.
