7 mins | Jun 2, 2020

As restrictions begin to be gradually lifted, it’s possible to believe that life will be good again. Denmark was one of the first countries in Europe that imposed a lockdown to contain the coronavirus outbreak in early March 2020. It was also one of the firsts to ease restrictions, including the re-opening of schools in mid-April and stores and restaurants in mid-May. Helen Russell, writing in the Guardian, gives a detailed version of what these measures have meant for everyday living in the nation, offering a potential glimpse into the future of the rest of the continent.
