Denmark’s prime minister has just announced that a nationwide lockdown will be extended until 13 April.

The lockdown has closed schools and restaurants in the country and kept most public sector workers at home.

In a press conference, PM Mette Frederiksen said the extended lockdown would mean schools, bars, libraries, gyms, hairdressers and other services would remain closed for another two weeks.

The country has reported more than 1,300 coronavirus cases and 13 deaths so far, according to the World Health Organization.

It is just one of many countries around the world to order lockdowns in a bid to tackle the virus.
