Denmark confirms 183 cases of the Omicron variant and triples infections in 48 hours

The Danish State Serum Institute reported 183 cases of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus this Sunday, a “worrying” circumstance, according to the authorities.

These data, published on the organism’s website, suggest that infections tripled in 48 hours. In addition, it means that in a single country, the previous data from the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention, which counted just 182 cases of Omicron across the EU, Norway and Iceland, has been exceeded.

“We are seeing a worrying rise in the number of omicron infections in Denmark. There are chains of infection and cases in people who have not traveled or are in a relationship with someone who has traveled,” the institute’s director, Henrik Ullum, said in a Expression.

“We are working hard to slow down the development with the detection of the virus variant in the laboratory so that the Danish Agency for Patient Safety can start detecting infections as soon as possible,” added Ullum.

Ullum also called for a vaccination. “Stronger immunity makes our society more resilient in the event that omicron infections get worse,” he said.
