COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said on Wednesday that Denmark will extend its lockdown measures in an effort to combat the coronavirus. “I think an extension of the restrictions is clearly necessary. Not least to ensure that the British mutation does not spread,” said Frederiksen. The current lockdown measures are in effect until January 17. Local media, citing sources from a meeting in parliament, said those measures would run for three weeks until February 7. Frederiksen did not give a date.
