In Denmark, where, as in many other European countries, measures are being gradually eased to stem the spread of the new coronavirus, the epidemic is under control, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said in Copenhagen today.
In Denmark, schools for children up to the age of 11 were reopened last week. Children must maintain a safe distance.
“The infection is under control and the Danish strategy was successful in the first, difficult phase,” she emphasized Frederiksenova.
In Denmark, kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, as well as cafes, restaurants, bars, gyms and hair salons were closed in mid-March. They banned the gathering of more than ten people.

Some measures have already been eliminated or mitigated, including the reopening of schools for children up to the age of 11 last week. After five weeks of closure, hair and massage parlors, tattoo parlors, dental surgeries and driving schools have opened their doors.
The second phase of loosening of the measures is expected to begin on 10 May. In general, the Danes must still follow the social distance guidelines and maintain a distance of two meters. The gathering of more than ten people is prohibited, and until May 10, cafes, restaurants, shopping malls and gyms will remain closed like high schools.
In Denmark, a total of 9206 cases of new coronavirus have been confirmed since the outbreak of the epidemic, with 443 people dead in the Scandinavian country due to covid-19.
