The Danish government and the supporting parties in Denmark have agreed to reopen the country from March 1.

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Mette Fredriksen and the Social Democrats agreed with the Socialist People’s Party, the Danish Social Liberal Party, and the Red–Green Alliance that the time has come to ease the corona restrictions.

The current measures expire this week, and the relief will therefore take place from March 1.

The government will provide more information during a press conference on Wednesday. 

On Tuesday, the country’s Minister of Justice Nick Hækkerup said that coronavirus testing people twice a week will be crucial for Denmark’s planned reopening.

Most shops to reopen

According to Hækkerup, most shops will be reopened, and the same applies to sports and cultural activities outdoors.

However, a limit of 25 people will be introduced for outdoor sports activities, he stated.

Furthermore, all upper secondary schools and colleges will reopen from mid-March.

A total of 2,343 corona-related deaths have been registered in Denmark, where just over 208,000 people have been diagnosed with corona infection.

The country thus has 40 corona deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, almost four times as many as Norway, which has eleven.
