According to the new report ‘ COVID-19 City Safety Ranking Q2/2021’, Copenhagen has done well in regards to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Produced by Deep Knowledge Group – a consortium of commercial and non-profit organisations active in GovTech, BioTech, FinTech, and SpaceTech – the report ranked Copenhagen 15th overall.

“It has weathered the COVID-19 crisis with a relatively low rate of infection and death. The contributing factors for the success included a rapid response from the government, trust, and a high level of confidence in the government by Danish citizens,” the report found.

“In addition, Danish health care accessibility and high-quality free public health services are an effective basis for containing the spread of infection.”

The report also underscored that Denmark’s wealthy society was more resilient to challenges presented by the pandemic.
