NB – As of 17 June, the figures regarding hospitalised patients, including patients in intensive care and patients in intensive care and on a ventilator are calculated using a new method.

Henceforth, COVID-19-related admissions to hospital are defined as admissions that begin within 14 days of the first positive sample sampling date. In addition, the definition is updated so that hospitalisation is delineated at 90 days after the first positive sample sampling date.

1) Number of tests = an individual may have had multiple tests done. The number of tests thus shows the total number og tests, that are or will be analyzed. 
2) People tested = the statistic on the number of people who have been tested does not include tests where the results are not back yet or where the test results were inconclusive.
3) Confirmed cases = the number reflects that number of people who have tested positive. The statistic does not encompass infected people who have not taken a test.
4) Hospitalised = the statistic on how many beds in intensive care units - and on other wards in the regions - that are taken up by laboratory-confirmed COVID-19-cases at seven each morning includes both those who are hospitalised because of COVID-19 symptoms and other illnesses. The patients may vary on different days. The Danish Health Authority disclaims any responsibility for the validity of the information regarding the of stated number people on ventilator.
5) Patients with confirmed COVID-19 illness can be classified as "recovered from COVID-19" 14 days after they have tested positive, at the earliest – meaning that there a delay of at least 14 days regarding this figure. See the definition of "recovered from COVID-19" in Danish in Epidemiologisk trend og fokus af 1. April 2020.
6) Deaths = the statistics on fatalities includes deaths recorded within 30 days of the detection of COVID-19 infection in the individual. However, COVID-19 is not necessarily the cause of death.

7) Change = changes in relation to the previous time of updating according to the time of the update.

Hospitalised patients

The substantial number of initiatives implemented in Denmark has resulted in a significant strengthening of the preventive efforts against further spread of COVID-19. The national healthcare strategy has changed accordingly in order to equip and prepare the healthcare system for the challenges of a COVID-19 epidemic while prioritising healthcare resources to go to those patients who need them the most.

The figure below illustrates the national progression in the number of hospitalised patients with confirmed COVID-19 in hospital, in the intensive care unit, and the number of intensive care patients who are on ventilators.

1,6 Progression in the number of hospitalised patients with confirmed COVID-19

Updated on 11 August at 2 p.m.

Source: the Danish regions
Note: The numbers reflect how many beds on intensive care units and other wards in the regions were occupied by confirmed COVID-19 patients as of 7 a.m. each morning. The patients may vary from day to day. The Danish Health Authority disclaims any responsibility for the validity of the information regarding the of stated number people on ventilator.

From 24 March to 2 April, the statistic on patients on ventilators in the Capital Region and Region Zealand include patients who at some point during their hospitalisation have been on ventilator. From 3 April onwards, the statistic from the two regions no longer includes patients who have completed respiratory treatment, which accounts for the drop in the number of patients on ventilator from and including 4 April.
The statistics were collected by the Danish Patient Safety Authority from 11 to 13 March and by the National Health Data Authority from 2 April.
