Earlier today, the government revealed that new restrictions could be on the way due to an increase in the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in recent days.

That sentiment will not have abated following health authority figures that revealed today that 760 new cases have surfaced over the past 24 hours – the most in a single day since the spring.

Aarhus, in particular, stood out in the figures, accounting for 103 new cases over the past day.

More positive tests
The stats also showed that there is a higher frequency of positive tests – an indication that the rise is not solely down to more people being tested.

Currently, 124 people are hospitalised: 17 in intensive care of whom 14 are on respirators.

Furthermore, an additional four people have died from COVID-19, bringing Denmark’s death toll up to 694.
