Denmark

Denmark’s first case of COVID-19 was discovered on 27 January 2020. The Danish Government imposed physical distancing measures early, closing all non-essential public sector services and many businesses from mid March. The government made significant economic interventions to limit the impact of the public health measures, including payments to small businesses and self-employed people. Restrictions on public life will be relaxed in the second half of April but may be resumed if the rate of cases begins to increase rapidly.
