BREAKING: Denmark Officially Ending All COVID Restrictions


Denmark has officially become the first EU country to end all of their COVID restrictions.

Starting February 1st, the country will drop the last of their current restrictions.

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen made the announcement in a press conference:

“Tonight we can shrug our shoulders and find the smile again. We have incredibly good news, we can now remove the last coronavirus restrictions in Denmark.”

Frederiksen pointed out that despite higher infection rates, the amount of people who have become severely ill has lessened considerably.

Health Minister Magnus Heunicke also shed light on Denmark’s daily COVID hospitalization cases, saying that while there were greater than 46,000 daily cases, only 40 people were in intensive care units.


The Daily Wire has more on this breaking announcement:

Denmark Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has announced that the European nation will end nearly all of its pandemic restrictions on February 1, despite other European countries extending restrictions.

“We say goodbye to the restrictions and welcome the life we knew before” the pandemic, Frederiksen said, according to the Associated Press. “As of Feb. 1, Denmark will be open.”

The prime minister also addressed the contrast between infection rates and the decision to return to pre-pandemic practices.

“It may seem strange that we want to remove restrictions given the high infection rates,” Frederiksen said. “But fewer people become seriously ill.”

Newsweek shared more details on the country’s current restrictions and hospitalization rates:

Restrictions currently in place are for the public to wear masks on public transportations, in restaurants, in shops, and people entering healthcare facilities and retirement homes, according to the Associated Press. However, following the February 1 change of restrictions, masks will only be required in hospitals, healthcare facilities and homes for the elderly.

“We say goodbye to the restrictions and welcome the life we knew before,” Frederiksen said. “As of Feb. 1, Denmark will be open.”

According to Health Minister Magnus Heunicke, Denmark’s recent cases of COVID were more than 46,000 daily on average; however, only 40 people are in hospital intensive care units.

Hopefully, other countries follow Denmark’s lead.
