Prime Minister Frederiksen says restrictions to end on Feb. 1
Infections are at a record, but hospitalizations are easing
Denmark will end virus restrictions next week and reclassify Covid-19 as a disease that no longer poses a threat to society, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen announced.
The country’s decision comes even as infections reach a record high, dramatically pushing forward an idea that’s emerged recently in Europe — that it’s time to start thinking about Covid as endemic rather than a pandemic.
The easing of curbs also echoes recent moves elsewhere, including Ireland and the U.K.
