Denmark Chief Epidemiologist says Omicron is Bringing about the End of the Pandemic and “We Will Have Our Normal Lives Back in Two Months”
Tyra Grove Krause – the Chief Epidemiologist at Denmark’s State Serum Institute – has said the Omicron variant is bringing about the end of the pandemic, saying “we will have our normal lives back in two months”. Speaking to Danish TV 2, the scientist said a new Government study has found that the risk of hospitalisation from Omicron is half of that from Delta.
MailOnline has more.
“I think we will have that in the next two months, and then I hope the infection will start to subside and we get our normal lives back,” [Ms Krause] said on Monday.
Despite early fears that Omicron could prolong the pandemic due to its increased level of infection, Ms Krause said it actually could spell the end of the pandemic.
According to the study: “Omicron is here to stay, and it will provide some massive spread of infection in the coming month. When it’s over, we’re in a better place than we were before.”
But while infection numbers in countries with the variant are soaring, the expert said that the highly infectious Omicron appears milder than the Delta variant, and therefore more people will be infected without having serious symptoms.
As a result, she said, this will provide a good level of immunity in the population.
Denmark has seen a spike in new cases in recent weeks, and on Sunday recorded its highest ever seven-day average infections, recording an average of 20,886 across the previous week, or 3,592.74 per million people – one of Europe’s highest rates.
It reported its highest ever new infections on December 27th (41,035).
By comparison, the UK’s seven-day average daily new confirmed COVID-19 cases per million people sits at 2,823.31 as on Monday, while in the United States, that number is 1,215.76 – lower than many countries in Europe.
Ms Krause stressed that there was still work to be done to beat the pandemic in the coming months, however.
“Omicron will peak at the end of January, and in February we will see declining infection pressure and a decreasing pressure on the health care system,” she said.
“But we have to make an effort in January, because it will be hard to get through.”
Encouraging stuff – though I’d be amazed if reported infections in Denmark continue rising until the end of January and don’t peak well before then, given reported infections in Gauteng in South Africa peaked weeks ago and infections appear to have stopped rising in London as well.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew.

VOUS AVEZ 1 MOIS POUR VOUS OPPOSER À LA FIN DU SECRET MÉDICAL : on vous explique comment ne pas activer « Mon espace santé »
04 janvier 2022
Après l’échec du Dossier médical partagé, voici l’arrivée au premier de l’an de « Mon espace santé » (Décret n° 2021-1048 du 4 août 2021).
Seulement 10 millions de Dossiers médicaux partagés avaient été ouverts en janvier 2021. Les assurés devaient faire l’effort de le créer.
Mon espace santé SE FERA TOUT SEUL, SANS QU’ON S’EN RENDE COMPTE… à moins de bien ouvrir l’œil sur le mail ou le courrier de la Sécurité sociale qui préviendra de la mise à disposition d’un espace numérique de santé et du DROIT À S’Y OPPOSER. Vous êtes donc libre de refuser, mais cela nécessite une démarche de votre part. (…)
