A total of 25,073 new cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in Denmark in the last 24 hours. The number of COVID-19 patients admitted to Danish hospitals is higher than ever before.

Among those who have been diagnosed with the coronavirus in the last 24 hours, 1,701 have already been infected before.

Nearly 50% of Danes have now received a third vaccine dose, but the omicron variant of the virus is still spreading rapidly in the population.

On Tuesday, 794 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized in Denmark, 24 more than the day before. Fifteen corona-related deaths were reported.

The pandemic has so far claimed 3,307 lives in Denmark, which is equivalent to 57 per 100,000 inhabitants. That is more than twice as many as in Norway, which has 24 corona-related deaths per 100,000 inhabitants.

Denmark is now experiencing the second-highest infection pressure in the world, surpassed only by Ireland.
