- In the middle or end of april, the maximum smitteudbredning happen, we can count us up to. It is there, where most will be infected at the same time, and most will be in need of hospitalization, " says Jens Lundgren, professor of infectious diseases at Rigshospitalet in copenhagen.

Else Smith, who is a specialist in community medicine and former director of the Danish Health and medicines authority also expects that the number of infected will begin to decrease again around the 1. may.

- We are a few weeks into the epidemiforløbet, and about six weeks or something like it will peak. If it is a fairly uniform curve, one can imagine that 200,000 to 300,000 people will have had the corona virus to the time. But the vast majority will not have been in need of medical attention, she says to DR.
