At the same time, it is reported that the number of hospitalized corona patients has increased by seven to 127, and that there have been two new corona-related deaths.

The last record for the number of infected in one day in the country since March was set on Friday with 859 cases.

From Monday, the infection measures will be tightened by lowering the assembly ban from 50 to 10. On Thursday, demands will be introduced for increased use of face masks in the public space, for example when shopping in shops.

One week ago, there were 451 cases of infection in one day in Denmark. Since then, the number has been rising – only interrupted by Saturday, when there was a slight drop compared to Friday.

– The growth is uncomfortably steep

Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke stated on Friday that the reproductive number or infection pressure is set at 1.2. This means that the pandemic is increasing, and that an average of ten infected people pass the infection on to twelve others.

The Statens Serum Institut has calculated that there is a risk of rising infection in four of the country’s five regions in the future.

– We see a rapid development, where growth is uncomfortably steep, says chief physician at Herlev and Gentofte Hospital, Kasper Iversen.

He supports the tightening of measures, and says it must be done to avoid an equally serious situation as seen in other countries in Europe.
