COPENHAGEN, Jan 26 (Reuters) – Denmark aims to lift all COVID-19 restrictions next week, marking the biggest easing of restrictions in the Nordic countries.

In a letter to Parliament, Health Minister Magnus Heunicke said the government intends to follow recommendations issued by a group of experts on Tuesday to remove all restrictions.

The proposal is still subject to parliamentary approval.
