Denmark is to lift all its remaining Covid-19 restrictions by 10 September after the health ministry declared the virus “no longer a critical threat to society” because of the country’s high level of vaccination.
“The epidemic is under control, we have record vaccination levels,” the health minister, Magnus Heunicke, said in a statement on Friday. “That is why we can drop the special rules we had to introduce in the fight against Covid-19.”
He warned, however, that even if the country was “in a good place right now”, the epidemic was not over and the government would not hesitate to “act quickly if the pandemic once again threatens the essential functioning of society”.
Denmark is the EU’s third-most vaccinated country, according to Our World in Data, with 71% of the population having received two shots. Malta is on 80% and Portugal 73%. The UK has fully vaccinated 62% of its population.
...The country was one of Europe’s first to impose a partial lockdown in March last year, ....
After tightening and relaxing anti-Covid measures throughout the pandemic, it was also one of the earliest to begin reopening, launching a “coronavirus passport” on 21 April this year.
Danish restaurants, bars, cinemas, gyms, sports stadiums and hairdressing salons have been open since that date for anyone who can prove that they are fully vaccinated, have a negative test result less than 72 hours old or contracted Covid within the past two to 12 weeks.

Israel and Iceland thought so, too - here’s hoping...
(But don’t count on it here. There are powerful interests that want to keep the Covid scare going - at least until the next important election.)
Karens cannot stop the mask/vax cold turkey.
My wife and I noticed that when we have been around our fully vaccinated friends we usually wake up the next morning with horse voices and scratchy throats. It might be because of what this controversial study discovered...
https://www.worldtribune.com/scientists-fully-vaccinated-carry-251-times-the-covid-viral-load-as-unvaccinated/ Of course the people pushing the "vaccinations" claim this has not been peer reviewed... unlike all of the pro-vax studies... /s Many of them will not even provide the source of their data.
Now we just wait for the fallout from all the vaccinated. Its going to get messy in a few yrs.
The vaxx doesn’t prevent Delta because it caused it
At least they are treating Covid recovered the same as the vaccinated, unlike the Faucists running things here.
You realize that study was comparing the viral loads of the vaxxed now to the unvaxxed of last spring in 2020 with the original variant? Not to the vaxxed now to the unvaxxed now of the Delta variant. The unvaxxed now have 1000-1200 times the viral load compared to last spring.
Fellow Washingtonian here. Inslee is an evil, deluded, cold, cruel, petulant human being (I use the term loosely). We are seriously considering moving out of state because of his idiocy.
Bit there are still letters in the Greek alphabet.
Yes; the “breakthrough infections” will be next in the fake news narrative.
The vax rode on the coattails of the natural immunity that preceded the rollout.
Lets hope this works, but many of us are convinced that the vaccines are just gonna make Covid come back with a vengeance.
Time will tell.
If only we weren’t discovering that the fully jabbed are starting to get sick and infecting others...higher rates of jabbed may soon become a big problem.
I will have to check again, but I think the number according to CNN is actually 100,000 to 120,000 times the viral load compared to the late 1960s in Las Nalga de Ventura, Guanajuato... Or was it 1 billion to 1.2 billion times the viral load in Wonowon, British Columbia during the Gold Rush?
Which marxist "fact checking" site did you find your whopper on?
I don’t think it matters. Our local ER here in FL wasn’t busy at all yesterday. Total ghost town. I expect we are over the usual summer bump in cases. Once those summer cases are resolved our hospitals will start emptying out.
We are in the same boat. A bunch of my former co-workers and subordinates on the fire department that I used to work for say they are retiring or just quitting over the vaccine mandate that Inslee is now requiring for them. My wife is a retired nurse and department head at multi-level care facilities. Many of her friends are telling her that they are going to quit and move out of the state. Thanks Governor Dimslee our health care system doesn't need all those nurses who have been taking care of the public through this for the last year and a half anyway.
