Denmark extends coronavirus restrictions for another two weeks

Particularly vulnerable risk groups to be issued blue badges that convey that others should keep their distance

At a press conference just moments ago, the government revealed that it has decided to extend the current coronavirus restrictions by another two weeks.

The decision means that the restrictions will be in force until at least October 31.

The health minister, Magnus Heunicke, said that Denmark must remain vigilant because, despite the number of cases decreasing here, the pandemic is still on the rise elsewhere in Europe.

He also revealed that people who are in the particularly vulnerable risk group will be issued a blue badge (see image above) that conveys that others should keep their distance.
