Denmark closing in on century mark for coronavirus fatalities

The health authority is unable to explain a dip in hospitalisations since Monday

According to the latest figures from the Sundhedsstyrelsen health authority, the number of Danes who have died from the coronavirus has increased to 90. 

That’s an increase of 13 since yesterday. 

The figures also revealed that the number of people in hospital fell from 533 to 529 – although Sundhedsstyrelsen is not sure why (13 deaths might have something to do with it).
