“As of February 1, 2022, there are no longer any restrictions due to Covid-19 in Denmark,” said the statement issued by the executive, which also specified that “there will continue to be recommendations for the use of Covid masks and passports, for example, in hospitals and in nursing homes.

The document details that this February 1, the elimination of all limitations on public transport, as well as in cultural and sports facilities, stores, shopping centers, services, religious communities, prisons and detention centers became effective.

For his part, the regional director of the World Health Organization (WHO) for Europe, Hans Kluge, told local media that "a very large fraction of the population is infected and the interval between the start of the disease and the peak it is only twenty days, so the strategy now is to protect the vulnerable.”

"We have to protect them and avoid disruptions to schools, the economy and health systems," said the senior WHO official.

Currently the weekly incidence in that nation is still very high (5,000 cases in 14 days per 100,000 inhabitants). According to official data, Sars-Cov-2 has caused 3,755 deaths and 1,742,569 infections in Denmark since the start of the pandemic.
