Denmark to extend lockdown measures

Denmark would extend its lockdown measures in an effort to combat the coronavirus, PM Mette Frederiksen said. “I believe that an extension of the restrictions is clearly necessary. Not least to ensure that the British mutation does not spread,” he pointed out cited by Reuters.

Current lockdown measures are in effect until 17 January. Local media, citing sources from a meeting in parliament, said those measures would be extended by three weeks until 7 February. Frederiksen herself did not give a date.
