Denmark allows Welsh individuals to visit without restriction, while the rest of the United Kingdom must wait.
DENMARK has permitted double-jabbed Welsh individuals to visit without having to self-isolate, but the rest of the UK will have to wait.
With the brave action of allowing Welsh people who have got both vaccines to visit freely, the Scandinavian country has backed Wales’ Covid programme. According to statistics, one in 360 people in Wales has COVID-19, compared to one in 95 in England.
Many social media users, apparently from Wales and other regions of the UK, have applauded it.
Green, yellow, orange, and red ratings are used to categorize danger levels for entry to Denmark. According to North Wales Live, the Danish authorities rated the UK as “red” on Saturday evening, with the exception of Wales.
Even if they are merely passing through, visitors from England, Scotland, or Northern Ireland must have a “particular legitimate reason” for visiting Denmark.
Case rates are even higher in Scotland, where one in every 90 people is likely to be infected.
The figure in Northern Ireland is one in 290.
Residents of Wales can only fly to Denmark from domestic airports. From Cardiff Airport, flights to Copenhagen are available on a regular basis.
“Denmark has put all of the UK on their red list except Wales as Wales seems to be the only rational nation,” one Facebook user stated.
“Wales does better on its own,” wrote another.
“Independence is the way forward – Welsh passport!” said a third.
Wales has taken a more careful approach to dealing with the coronavirus and reopening the country than the UK.
While England is celebrating Independence Day today, Wales will begin to see measures eased on Saturday, July 17.
On Saturday, August 7, all freedoms will be restored.
“The pandemic is not finished, and the virus continues to spread across Wales, which makes it even more crucial for everyone to say yes to vaccination and to do everything we can to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe,” First Minister Mark Drakeford said at a press conference last week.
“Despite the fact that immunizations have lessened the link between the virus and hospitalization, we are seeing young, fit persons get long-Covid, which has a significant impact on their lives for some.”
