The Government of Demark emphasizes that it will lift almost all COVID restrictions in the coming week; amid recording covid cases, it will also be necessary to give vaccination so that the variant of Omicron can be fought.
Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told a press conference that the government is saying goodbye to the COVID-19 restrictions and welcome to life as they treat it before coronavirus.
According to a survey of AFP bureaus, Denmark is set to become the first European Union country to lift domestic curbs despite the Omicron wave sweeping the continent.
Frederiksen said a successful vaccine program had become a super-weapon and become a shield of protection for the country against covid-19 infection that continues.
Therefore, the government decided that the coronavirus should no longer be considered a dangerous disease for society.
That means the removal of all domestic restrictions, including vaccine passes, wearing masks, and the early closure of bars and restaurants, will no longer be followed.
Several European countries such as Ireland, France and the United Kingdom have announced lifting or reducing their restrictions, hospitalization rates are also reduced.
Health authorities of England and Denmark have recommended covid positives to isolate at least for four days.
Danish Health authorities informed 60 percent of Danes had received their third dose, and the most vulnerable people also got the fourth jab last week.
Health authorities also informed that the situation is under control as many people hospitalized with Covid have recovered; vaccination has also reduced hospitalization.
The hospitalization rate was up 16 percent at the beginning of January, even though cases raised 35 percent.
