said that Denmark had “managed the situation to avoid the misfortune that has befallen a number of other countries.
Denmark To Open Schools
She that the gradual reopening would only happen if the numbers stay stable and she urged all Danes to stick to the government’s guidelines on social distancing and hygiene.
Denmark announced closures on March 11 and shut its borders to most foreigners on March 14.
In the days leading up to the lockdown, the number of coronavirus infections had increased ten-fold to 514. Over the past month, the country has increased its testing and has managed to flatten the curve of new infections.
The daily number fell to 233 on Friday from 331 on Thursday and 391 on Wednesday, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.
The total number of confirmed cases was 5,830 yesterday with a total of 237 deaths.
The government based its decision to relax the rules on mathematical simulations of how much intensive care and general hospital beds would be needed in different reopening scenarios.
The Government had said after results come that it’s crucial that we still maintain physical distance and cling to the hygiene.
The group based its assumptions on children not being able to stay physically distant.
It calculated that easing the restrictions as envisaged by the government would increase, thé spread of infection from an “80” value also known as the basic reproduction number of 1.0, where one carrier causes one new infection, to 1.23, in which on infection leads to 1.23 infections.
Goverment Policy On Safety
That would not! overwhelm the health system because it would entail a need for 264 intensive care beds and 649 general hospital beds; according to the median of est mates.
If Govt lifts the restrictions and people do not maintain the physical distance, the spread of iniéction will increase to 1.72, leading to a sharply increased need of 767 intensive care beds and 1,893 common beds.
Denmark, like other nations, is also working on antibody tests that would determine who has been infected with coronavirus and is therefore unlikely to be reinfected for up to two years.
Some commentators in neighbour- ing Germany, where federal and regional authorities are still arguing over when to relax restrictions, have praised Denmark’s response.
