The Danish government announced that Prime Minister (PM) Mette Frederiksen would issue a press release shortly announcing the removal of all restrictions related to the Corona (known also as COVID-19) pandemic as of January 31, based on the recommendations of the pandemic committee.
According to Austrian TV 2, Mette Frederiksen will say that COVID-19 as of February 5 should not be classified as socially critical.
According to the Austrian TV, the Danish Prime Minister will hold a press conference on Wednesday at 6 pm in the Mirror Hall in the Prime Minister’s Office.
In addition to removing all restrictions, she will also announce that, from February 5, the Coronavirus will not be classified as a socially dangerous disease.
As omicron drives a new phase of the pandemic, many are looking to Denmark and particularly the government institute devoted to testing, surveillance, and modeling for warnings about what to expect.
The emerging answer — even in this highly vaccinated, wealthy northern European country — is dire. For all the defenses built over the last year, the virus is about to sprint out of control, and scientists here expect a similar pattern in much of the world.
