On Friday, Denmark became the only European nation with no Covid curbs, losing a requirement to show vaccine passports to enter nightclubs as it cautiously embraces a return to normal.
According to reports, new infections have eased off in Denmark as vaccine rates have climbed, reaching over 70 per cent of the overall population.
However, as the country faces a new post-pandemic reality, the WHO warned that vaccines alone may not end the pandemic and the virus could be around for years.
One Denmark resident said the lifting of the last curbs was liberating after a tough pandemic slog.
The nightclub rule was the last in a long line of measures that Denmark has gradually lifted in recent months.
It is now the only nation in Europe to have no restrictions in place after Iceland lifted all its measures in June, only to reimpose them after cases spiked again.
It will be recalled that Denmark introduced Covid passports in March 2021 as part of a gradual easing of rules.
On August 1 it lifted the Covid pass requirement at museums and indoor events with fewer than 500 people, before ditching it for major events, while masks have not been required on public transport since mid-August.
Danish authorities insist the virus is under control, with around 500 daily Covid cases and a reproduction rate of 0.7.
Vaccines have been swiftly rolled out, with 73 per cent of the 5.8 million population fully vaccinated, and 96 per cent of those 65 and older.
