Mounting concerns over rising coronavirus cases mean that another country could face the same fate as France and Spain by being chopped from the UK travel corridor list. With Denmark now exceeding COVID-19 levels of countries already on the UK's "red list", Britons with travel plans to the Nordic destination could be left in despair.
The UK Government is currently using a threshold of 20 cases per 100,000 people over a seven-day period to decide whether nations should remain on the list.
The seven-day infection rate per 100,000 people has hit 28.8 in Denmark.
This exceeds the likes of Jamaica and Belgium who have been classified as "red-listed" countries.
At the time of writing, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), Denmark has seen a rise of 43.3 new cases in the previous 14 days from September 14, 2020.

In the same time period, the UK saw 51.1.
Despite this, the Government has not released an official update as to what the future holds for Denmark.
At the time of writing, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) states: "From 4 July, Denmark is exempt from the FCDO advice against all non-essential international travel.
"This is based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks."
