Denmark says it will no longer define COVID-19 as a disease that threatens society, according to the country’s health minister, Magnus Heunicke, who declared on Friday that the pandemic was now under control.
“We have recorded high vaccination rates. Therefore, as of September 10, we can drop some of the special rules we had to introduce in the fight against COVID-19.”
For people living in the country, this means that they would no longer have to show a coronavirus pass when visiting restaurants, night clubs or public events.
The compulsory wearing of face masks in public spaces, nicknamed ‘mask mandates’, have not been in effect for some time.

Denmark has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, with 80 per cent of the population over the age of 12 now fully vaccinated.
Mr Heunicke warned, however, that though it may be under control in Denmark, the pandemic is not over.
“The government will not hesitate to act quickly if the pandemic again threatens important functions in our society,” the minister said.
