And they recorded a record 23228 new cases in the country.
Copenhagen. High infection of the least dangerous variant of coronavirus Omicron A return to normal life by March, Danish epidemiologist Tyra Grove Krause said on Wednesday, after infections peaked at the end of January.
She is the vice president of the Serum Statins Institute (SSI) and a key advisor to the government on the coronavirus crisis, according to the Brussels Times.
Denmark is experiencing a new wave of infections, with a record 23,228 confirmed cases within 24 hours, making it one of the countries with the highest number of daily infections compared to the total population (about 5.8 million people) in the world.
“Everything indicates that Omicron is lighter than delta “The risk of hospitalization is only half,” Krause told Danish media, based on a study by the SSI.
For her, the high omicron infection is good news in this regard, because it “will lead to a massive spread of infection in the following month, and will peak at the end of January”.
“It will be another difficult month. But when it ends, we will be in a better position than before … I think the infection rate will start to decrease in two months and we can return to normal life by March,” Krause said. He said.
The Brussels Times further wrote that Belgian virologist Stephen van Gucht made a similar statement in an interview with De Standard on Wednesday, predicting that January and February would be “extremely unpleasant”.
“We’ll have to be patient with our teeth for a while,” Van Gucht said. “But I expect an improvement in March.” However, according to him, experts are still waiting for biostatistical models from Niel Hens, in order to be able to say something with certainty about the properties of the omicron.
“Estimates and general criteria are changing models in all directions. We have to wait until the data becomes more reliable,” he added.
