Denmark Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said on Monday (May 23) that the government will soon present a strategy for managing COVID-19 should the virus re-surge next autumn and winter.
Although everyday life in Denmark is now free of any signs of COVID-19 restrictions, a plan will be put in place to manage a potential increase in cases of the virus once colder months return, Frederiksen said during remarks in parliament.
During a speech given as part of the parliament’s closing session before its summer break, Frederiksen noted that COVID-19 still persists in other countries and that Denmark must therefore have its own plan in place for future management of outbreaks.
“The government will therefore, before the summer (holiday), present a strategy for ongoing Covid management. We will discuss it with the other parties in parliament,” she said.
Frederiksen also said that Denmark was among the countries to have coped best with the pandemic.
“We are one of the countries that have had the lowest excess deaths. And one of the countries that has emerged best from the crisis economically. That is thanks to the efforts of each individual citizen in the country,” she said.
