Denmark urgently grounded flights to and from the United Kingdom for 48 hours due to severe epidemic

The Danish Ministry of Transport issued a statement on the 21st local time that flights to and from the United Kingdom will be suspended from 10:00 local time on the 21st to 10:00 local time on the 23rd.

The statement said that the mutant novel coronavirus is spreading rapidly in London and other parts of the United Kingdom, which will pose risks to controlling the epidemic infection, and Denmark needs to assess the situation and possible measures.

Benny Engelbrecht, Denmark’s Transport Minister, said that the current epidemic prevention situation in Denmark is very serious, the infection rate in the whole country is high, and society has once again entered a “state of closure”.

Engelbrecht quoted the Danish Ministry of Health as saying that the new strain of the novel coronavirus in the United Kingdom may make the epidemic more difficult to control.
