Denmark to scrap all Covid-19 restrictionsEuropost
Denmark will on 10 September stop classifying Covid-19 as an “illness which is a critical threat to society”, meaning all remaining restrictions will expire, and one will not even be required a coronapass to enter nightclubs or Superliga football games, news wires reported.
In a press release issued on Friday morning, the country’s health minister Magnus Heunicke said that the high level of vaccination in Denmark, particularly among the vulnerable, had radically altered the risks posed by the virus.
“The epidemic is under control, we have record high vaccination rates,” he said in a statement. “As a result, on 10 September, we can drop some of the special rules we have had to introduce in the fight against Covid-19.”
10 September marks the expiry date for that the executive order classifying Covid-19 as a “socially critical illness”, which was passed by the Danish parliament’s Epidemic Committee on March 10th last year.
