In Denmark, since 21 April, bars, cafes, restaurants, museums, sports stadiums and places such as the tattooist have been opened to anyone older than 72 hours who have demonstrated vaccination using a negative test result or a coronapas digital certificate. Daily life then returned to its normal course, almost before the pandemic.
The concert hall called Forum, located in the university district of Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark, has been transformed into a large test center. 25-year-old Casper Beckers, one of those waiting in line, stated that he was reviewing his entertainment plans with his friends over the weekend, and about the change in the country since Denmark introduced the “coronapas” system last month, “This is a very big, very sharp contrast. “open and finally I see people almost back to normal. A bar I went to recently was crowded like it was in the old days.”
Beckers was directed to one of the 60 booths inside the concert hall and went outside for 10 minutes. The negative test result came to the cell phone half an hour later.
On the other hand, in Denmark since April 21, venues such as bars, cafes, restaurants, museums, sports stadiums and tattooists have been opened to anyone older than 72 hours who can demonstrate that they have been vaccinated using a negative test result olaj or coronapas digital certificate.
However, test centers have been established in every region of the country. More than 1 million people were tested against Covid-19 last week. So in the country of 5.9 million people, about one in four adults is tested. Officials said many of these people were tested multiple times during the week.
Tanya-Maria Solskov, owner of Spisebar 20, a vibrant venue in the bustling Nørrebro district of Copenhagen, said the customers’ feedback was “incredible”. However, the different formats used by different test providers make it difficult to control documents, he said, “It almost requires an extra person to work here. I think the government should provide us with money for it, because normally this is not our responsibility and after they shut us down for four and a half months, it is already economical. “We are fighting as” he said.
On the other hand, the biggest criticism of digital transition certificates came from anti-lock advocates called Men in Black, who protested against its restrictions in Denmark. “You can just say ‘I’m exempt’ from restrictions and they can’t ask you for evidence under the law. Coronapas is a way of putting pressure on people to vaccinate. What they’re doing now is forcing us to get a vaccine that you don’t trust,” said Stephanie Risum, one of the members of the group.
The Scandinavian country has reported 2,490 deaths with a total of 253,673 cases caused by the new type of corona virus so far. As of May 1, 11.3 percent of the country’s population had two doses of Covid-19 vaccine.
