A weekly trend report from the national infectious disease control agency, State Serum Institute (SSI) shows that 3,781 people returned positive PCR tests for the coronavirus last week, compared to 4,247 the preceding week.
It should be noted that Denmark does not generally advise Covid-19 tests for those not at risk of severe illness from the virus.
Going further back, the number has almost halved, with 9,015 positive PCR tests registered during the week beginning October 10th.
The number of people with Covid-19 newly admitted to hospitals has also fallen, from 275 two weeks ago to 245 last week.
SSI has begun to include vaccine effectiveness as a new parameter in its weekly trend report.
According to the agency, people who have recently received a booster against Covid-19 are better protected against the virus than those who have not received a booster.
“Our analyses of the effect of the booster show that persons who received the fourth dose [second booster, ed.] prior to September 15th are well protected against hospital admission as a result of Covid-19,” SSI senior medical consultant Bolette Søborg said in a statement on the agency’s website.
The latest booster provides “around 75 percent better” protection against hospital admission compared to people who have received three doses,” she said.
