Vast majority won’t be travelling this summer

And around 70 percent don’t believe the current vaccine calendar will remain on schedule

If the tourism sector is under the impression that things are going to return to normal this summer, they’ll have another thing coming.

According to a new Voxmeter survey, 75 percent of Danes are planning not to travel abroad this coming summer.

“It’s a frighteningly high number. In a normal year, the figures would be opposite – or at least half would go travelling,” Lars Thykier, the head of the travel bureau assocation, Dansk Rejsebureau Forening, told TV2 News.

The same survey also revealed that almost 70 percent do not expect the government’s current COVID-19 vaccine calendar to remain on schedule.

That calendar, which was updated on March 19, has everyone being fully vaccinated by the end of July.
