Denmark strikes new autumn record for Covid patients

Denmark now has more people in hospital with coronavirus than at any time in more than six months, the country's infectious diseases agency SSI said in a statement on Saturday.


The country now has 243 patients in hospital, of which 41 are being treated in intensive care, and 30 on a ventilator, the agency revealed on its Covid-19 dashboard
That is the most since May 4th, and seven more than were being treated on Friday. 
The number being treated in hospital has been climbing steadily, with 102 patients at the start of October and 147 at the start of November. 
The institute also reported that 1,078 people had tested positive for coronavirus since Friday.
