Denmark will speed up lifting Covid-19 restrictions after the latest numbers of new cases proved lower than expected, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said today.
Speaking at a press conference, Frederiksen said because the numbers of admissions is “better than expected,” they will expand the so-called phase 1 of re-opening, that starts tomorrow, with the partial reopening of schools for younger students.
Denmark has said before it plans to send children back to school and kindergarten from April 15 if coronaviruses cases remain stable.
It is not yet clear what other restrictions will be eased. Prime Minister said she will discuss this with other government leaders this evening.
Denmark is one of the few western countries that is gradually easing the restrictions. Read more on how they are doing it here.
