More than 453,000 people (-27%) came to the test lanes of the Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs) to get tested for SARS-CoV-2 from 7 to 14 December 2021. The percentage of positive tests rose to 23.4%. The number of newly reported infections decreased in all age groups. The highest number of reported positive tests per 100,000 inhabitants continues to be among children of primary school age.
