One million corona infections in Denmark since the pandemic began
COPENHAGEN (dpa-AFX) – In Denmark, more than a million people have been infected with the corona virus since the pandemic began. On Wednesday, the state health institute SSI reported 24 343 proven corona cases in the past 24 hours, including 22 729 new infections and 1614 re-infections. This means that the virus has so far been detected in 1 000 009 citizens of the EU country with its almost six million inhabitants. If you add the new infections, the total number is 1,030,638. A total of 3,433 infected people have died in the pandemic so far.
Despite the high number of new infections in the country for a long time, the Danes are less worried about the corona situation than they were a few weeks ago. This was shown by the latest results of the so-called Hope project, which is monitoring the behavior of the Danish population during the pandemic.
The reason given is that the hospitals are not as heavily burdened as feared. The number of hospital patients with corona infection has been relatively constant between 700 and 800 for a long time, on Wednesday there were 751 people, three fewer than the day before. This number of patients includes all people who had to be hospitalized because of an infection, as well as those who were admitted for something else but are also infected.
A number of corona measures are currently in place in Denmark, including cinemas, theaters and other cultural institutions are closed. However, it is expected that these measures will be relaxed somewhat in a few days. The Danish government wanted to hold a press conference on Wednesday evening./trs/DP/jha
