RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Denmark has repeatedly attracted attention for increasingly rational assessments of the Covid situation in recent months. Not only did a Danish newspaper publicly admit to having failed in its Corona coverage, but the government and authorities increasingly took a clear line, positioning themselves against mass panic and overreaching measures.

Even the Danish Health Authority, for example, felt compelled to conduct a fact check on the chronically exaggerated dangerousness of Covid-19. After all Corona measures in the country had already been dropped at the beginning of 2022, the vaccination program is now – as previously announced – also being terminated.
Already in January, it had been announced that the Covid vaccination campaign was to be terminated shortly.
Now they are taking this step: the “epidemic is under control,” infection rates are falling, and stable hospitalization rates. Vaccination rates are high enough anyway. “That’s why we are stopping the mass vaccination program against Covid-19,” Bolette Søborg, director of the Danish Health Authority’s infectious diseases department, said Tuesday.
The program is expected to be restarted in the fall – but then a thorough professional assessment will first be made of who will be vaccinated, when, and with which vaccines, she said.
