Denmark became one of the first countries in the European Union to loosen all internal restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The epidemic is under control,” said Danish Health Minister Magnus Hoinicke.
The country’s authorities have lifted the remaining restrictions. Danish residents will no longer be required to prove vaccination, including to enter nightclubs.
Denmark’s Ministry of Health said the widespread distribution of the vaccine allowed the country to lift the pandemic’s control measures.
More than 83% of the country’s population who are over 12 years old have received vaccines against coronavirus in Denmark. At the same time, over the past week, an average of about 500 new cases a day were registered there.
The Ministry of Health believes that the coronavirus in Denmark is no longer classified as a “socially critical disease”. However, they noted that the government can return the restrictions if the situation worsens.
