The corona numbers in Denmark continue to rise.
Most recently, the highest number of new infections was reported since May - the positive rate is even the highest since January.
Copenhagen / Denmark - In the popular German holiday destination Denmark, the corona numbers are currently increasing.
According to the Statens Serum Institute (SSI), 1,284 new infections were recorded in the country in the last 24 hours alone (as of July 28, 2021).
This is the highest number of new infections since May 21, 2021. If you look at the positive rate of the corona tests, according to the Politiken portal, it is even the highest value since January 2021. What does this mean for holidays in Denmark?

Incidence in Denmark remains high - many vaccinated among those infected
Of the 80,295 PCR tests performed, 1284 were positive on July 28, 2021.
This results in a positive rate of 1.62 percent and thus the highest since January 13, 2021. This is reported by the Danish portal Politiken.
According to corona-in-zahlen.de, the incidence in Denmark is currently 88.9 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days.
Those infected also include people who have already been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Politiken said 22 percent of those infected with the Delta variant had been vaccinated at least once.
Torben Mogensen, chairman of the lung association and long-time anesthetist, therefore believes that "first vaccinations do not protect particularly well against the Delta variant".
However, according to Mogensen, the first vaccination already protects against serious disease progression.
The number of new infections in Denmark is increasing - there are still few infected people in the hospital
Despite the large number of new infections and the high incidence, the number of infected people who currently have to be treated in a hospital is comparatively low.
In Denmark, 64 people are currently being treated as inpatients due to a corona infection.
Ten patients are in the intensive care unit - five have to be ventilated.

Torben Mogensen attributes this to the vaccinations.
“It has something to do with the fact that so many are vaccinated,” he believes.
Regarding the low burden on hospitals, he also said to Politiken: “These patients play no role in the hospital system.
There are so few who have to be admitted to the hospital ”.
In Denmark, according to Politiken, 52.3 percent of the population are currently fully vaccinated against Corona.
70.9 percent of all Danes have already received at least a single dose of vaccine.
High incidence in Denmark: what does this mean for summer holidays on the Baltic and North Sea?
According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Denmark has been a so-called risk area again since July 25, 2021.
To enter Denmark, holidaymakers must provide proof of full vaccination, recovery or a negative test result.
There are also a number of things that holidaymakers have to consider when returning to Germany.
When returning from a risk area, entry to Germany must be registered digitally.
If you do not want to be in quarantine, you have to show a negative PCR test before crossing the border or at the latest 48 hours after entering the country.
The ADAC reports.
Recovered and fully vaccinated people are exempt from this rule.
In Denmark itself, despite the high incidence, there are currently few restrictions.
So shops, restaurants and bars are open.
However, a curfew from 2:00 a.m. applies in the catering trade.
A mask is only required for public transport.
