Huge drop in COVID-19 related hospitalisations
The figures (here in Danish) showed a significant decline in infection rates since June 5, a development that has been reflected in the number of patients being admitted to hospital.
“We are elated to see the curve for hospitalisations being broken. It’s a clear result of our elderly and most vulnerable being vaccinated,” said Helene Probst, the deputy head of Sundhedsstyrelsen.
“We are starting to see the direct impact of almost half of the population having started their vaccinations.”
Further decline expected
Probst went on to confirm that Sundhedsstyrelsen expected the number of hospitalisations to further drop.
Currently, there are about 100 people hospitalised nationwide due to COVID-19 – in May the figure was at about 150 throughout the month.
Moreover, the number of patients in intensive care units has also dwindled to under 20.
