Towards reducing the spread of the coronavirus in its country, Denmark has shut its country and is on lockdown.
Speaking during a press conference, the country’s Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen said the country will shut all schools and institutions for a period of 14 days to reduce the spread of the disease.
Speaking the Prime Minister said “This will have huge consequences, but the alternative would be far worse.
“Under normal circumstances, a government would not present such far-reaching measures without having all the solutions ready for the many Danes concerned.
But we are in an extraordinary situation. We will not get through this as a country without a cost. Businesses will close. Some will lose their jobs. We will do what we can to mitigate the consequences for employees.”
Denmark is the second country to go on lockdown after Italy.
