COVID-19, better known as the corona virus, originated in Wuhan in China, and has since then spread to most of the world. On March 11, the World Health Organization, WHO, declared COVID-19 a pandemic, meaning it is a worldwide epidemic.
The virus has already petrified large parts of the world. Most countries in Europe have introduced extensive initiatives in order to curb contagion. Among other things, this has resulted in the shutdown of kindergartens, schools and universities, and regulation of the freedom of assembly. In multiple countries, restaurants, movie theaters, cafés and nightclubs have also been forced to stay closed.
On February 27, the first Danish case of COVID-19 was confirmed. Since then, the virus has spread at such a fast rate that the government decided to instate a temporary 14-day lockdown, close the borders, and urge Danish citizens abroad to come home as soon as possible. As of today (June 1st, 2020), 11.669 people have tested positive for corona virus in Denmark. 574 have died.
