More than 1000 new corona infections in Denmark for the first time


Denmark – Denmark has registered more than 1000 new infections compared to the previous day for the first time since the start of the pandemic. As revealed Monday by data from the state health institution SSI, 1056 new cases of corona have been registered since Sunday. SSI director Kåre Mølbak pointed out, however, that this time, due to technical problems, this number is 28 instead of 24 hours and that the level is therefore more or less the same as on Sunday.

On Sunday, the Danes reported a peak with 945 new infections. However, Denmark puts much more strain on it than in spring, which is why the figures can only be compared to a limited extent with those for March or April.

The development is followed with concern in neighboring northern Germany 145 people are now in hospital with a coronavirus infection, the highest level since mid-May. There were also six deaths on Monday. This means that more than 41,400 cases have been confirmed in Denmark so far, 708 people with corona infection have died so far. Based on a population of around 5.8 million people, the number of new infections every day is on a par with Germany.

In the fight against the spread of the coronavirus, further restrictions came into effect in Denmark on Monday. From now on, no more than ten people can gather in one place. Most people from Germany have only been allowed to enter the country for a valid reason since Saturday. From Thursday the mandatory mask will also be extended by local public transport to all public spaces such as supermarkets.
