According to Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, the government will soon reveal a plan for dealing with Covid-19 if it resurfaces in Denmark next winter and autumn.

Although there are no signs of Covid-19 restraint in the day-to-day life in Denmark, a strategy will be introduced to deal with a possible rise in prevalence of the virus once the colder months resume, Frederiksen said in parliament.

During a talk delivered as part of the parliament’s final session before the summer recess, Frederiksen stated that the coronavirus still exists in other nations and that Denmark must put a concrete plan in place for future outbreak management.

“As a result, the government will present an approach for continuing Covid management prior to the summer (holiday).  We’ll talk to the other parties in parliament about it,” she said.

Denmark, according to Frederiksen, was among the nations that fared the best in managing the pandemic.

“We are among the nations with the fewest excess deaths.” And one of the nations that have recovered the most, economically, from the crisis. “This is due to the efforts of every single citizen in the country,” she said.

A fresh wave of Covid-19 infections is expected later this year, said a Danish medical expert.

“As things are at the moment, we can justifiably hope that the fully vaccinated individuals will be well-protected against severe infection and, as a result, we will see few hospital admissions,” Henrik Nielsen, Aalborg University’s infectious disease department senior medical consultant, told news agency Ritzau.

“However, the number of infections with a respiratory virus that causes a few days’ sickness could easily be greater in the winter and autumn.  We anticipate a small number of serious infections,” he said.
