According to figures from the State Serum Institute (SSI), the number of new daily coronavirus cases has fallen to the lowest point in a month.

290 new cases were registered by SSI nationwide yesterday, the lowest figures since early September.

One disclaimer, however, is that there are fewer people currently being tested for COVID-19 than was the case in parts of September.

But despite that, there has also been a decline in the number of people hospitalised for the virus – down by four to 103. 

Out of those numbers 19 are in intensive care, 14 of whom are on a respirator. 

Over the past 24 hours, another three people have succumbed to the virus and Denmark’s overall death toll now sits at 674.

At the moment, north-Jutland is the area of the country with the highest infection rate.

Struer tops the charts with 281 cases per 100,000 citizens. Brønderslev, Skive and Jammerbugten follow with about 150 per 100,000.
