Denmark is at risk of losing its travel corridor with the UK this week, with its seven-day infection rate on Sunday hitting 30 per 100,000, far above the UK's threshold of 20 cases per 100,000 people.


The prospect was raised by the UK's Daily Telegraph newspaper on Sunday. 
If the UK reviews Denmark's travel corridor status this week, that means that travellers from Denmark to the UK will need to self-isolate for 14 days. 
Denmark was exempted from the UK's quarantine regulations on July 4th, when the country brought in its first travel corridors for low-infection countries.  
The risk to Denmark's status comes as travellers from Sweden were on Saturday exempted from the UK's quarantine requirement following a sharp drop in its seven-day infection rate.
