Cases finally going up here in DK, passing the 1000/daily mark, with experts maintaining prospects of 4000/daily around Christmas as a culmination and maybe 200 hospitalizations, but they're still saying that the sickness will be much less fatal and serious than in the earlier stages of the pandemic. Masks might be re-introduced, for example in schools.

For unvaccinated, they say it's a choice only between getting the infection at some time in the nearer future, with related risks, or getting the vaccine, with less risks.
85% of people older than 12 years, and 76.2 % of the total population, have had their vaccines.

Since Denmark and Finland are very similar size countries, comparing the numbers is pretty easy:

In Finland we have on average about 750 cases/day at the moment. In hospitals we have 208 covid patients of which 30+ are in intensive care. 77 % of patients in hospitals are unvaccinated. At this point we have 1133 corona deaths.

Twice vaccinated: 76 % of people older than 12 and 67 % of the whole population. Vaccine hesitancy has been stronger than expected. Especially young adults and immigrants have been lazy taking the vaccine. One theory for this laziness is that this pandemic has been relatively easy in Finland (mild restrictions) and it hasn't caused as much damage as in many other countries such as Italy and that's why younger adults don't take this seriously. Corona passport was introduced last Saturday and it might increase the interest of getting the vaccines.

Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

608 new cases today in Norway, also of the same size. 69% of the whole population fully vaccinated. I'm thinking as you. 893 detahs in all, mainly older people, mainly from before vaccinations started to have effect. Quite a few with one dose seem to neglect to take the second.

On paper, beds are easy to add. The difficulty lies in finding the nurses to go with them. One intensive care bed = 1 full time nurse. Nurses in Canada are overworked and difficult to lure into the hospital network (all hospitals are public here). Private sector clinics offer much better conditions, but do not tend to Covid patients.

Is this the UK Covid triumph made possible by early vaccinations and not being part of the EU?  ::)
