Preliminary figures show that, in Denmark, there is a positive development in infection rates and admissions after vaccination against COVID-19.
Out of 595,943 people who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus in Denmark as of March 17, 3,669 have been infected with the coronavirus after being vaccinated. That constitutes a share of 0.6% of those vaccinated.
The vast majority of them have been infected during the first 26 days after the first dose.
In the group that received both doses, only 0.06% were infected 40 days or longer after the first jab.
The status report from the National Board of Health also shows that coronavirus among health personnel is now below the national average.
The infection has also dropped significantly among people over the age of 85 and nursing home residents. In week 10, only one nursing home resident tested positive for coronavirus.
