The incidence of coronavirus among children between the ages of six and eleven in Denmark is at the highest level so far in the pandemic, according to figures from the Danish health authorities.

In week 50, which ended on Sunday, December 19, there were 2,679 corona cases per 100,000 people in the aforementioned age group. The week before, there were 2,576 cases per 100,000 children in the age group. According to a report from the Danish Institute of Public Health, Statens Serum Institut (SSI), the increase is less sharp than in previous weeks.

At the beginning of November, the incidence was around 450 cases per 100,000 children between the ages of six and eleven.

“It seems that the growth among 6-11-year-olds is about to flatten out. On the other hand, we are experiencing a large increase among 20-24-year-olds and 16-19-year-olds, with 1,916 and 1,873 cases per 100,000, respectively,” the Friday report stated.
