Here we go again! COVID-19 restrictions to be further extended
It’s starting to sound like a broken record now.
Among other measures, it means that shops, shopping centres, hairdressers and tattoo parlours will remain closed and school kids (grades 0-9) will learn remotely at home.
Supermarkets and pharmacies will continue to be exempted and a silver lining is that no new restrictions will be introduced.
Race against time
The move comes despite infection rates dwindling in Denmark recently, but there is a reason for that.
The government is acutely concerned about the mutation of the coronavirus currently filling up hospitals to the brink in the UK and Ireland.
Denmark is desperately trying to keep the spread of the British variant to a minimum as the country races to vaccinate its vulnerable population and health workers.
Health experts contend that the new UK strain is upwards of 70 percent more contagious and will become the dominant variant in Denmark at some point.
The government will reveal more information at a press conference at 19:00 tonight.
