Denmark Ends All COVID-19 Restrictions

Denmark lifts all Covid restrictions as vaccinations top 80%

Denmark’s high vaccination rate has enabled it to become one of the first EU countries to lift all domestic restrictions, after 548 days with curbs in place to limit the spread of Covid-19,

The return to normality has been gradual, but as of Friday, the digital pass – proof of having been vaccinated – is no longer required when entering nightclubs, making it the last virus safeguard to fall.

More than 80% of the Danish population above the age of 12 has had the two shots.

“Denmark is lifting the restrictions because the vaccine rollout has been very successful,” said Jens Lundgren, Professor of Viral Diseases, Copenhagen University Hospital.

“As a consequence, we have the pandemic under control in this country and can therefore handle whatever remaining of those who still get infected within the frameworks of our hospital system.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Thursday that the US case rate is currently 16 times too high to end the pandemic.

“The endgame is to suppress the virus. Right now, we’re still in pandemic mode, because we have 160,000 new infections a day. That’s not even modestly good control … which means it’s a public health threat,”.

He added that to feel comfortable ending the pandemic, we have to be seeing fewer than 10,000 cases per day in the US.

Fauci pointed to vaccines, once again, as the country’s way out.

“You’ll still get some people getting infected, but you’re not going to have it as a public health threat,” he said.
