#7 Denmark, Mette Frederiksen
While many European countries took time to respond to the pandemic, Denmark’s youngest ever Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen, closed borders in early March. A few days later she closed kindergartens, schools and universities and banned gatherings of more than 10 people. The country’s death toll stands at less than 250, with the number of patients being treated declining daily.
Frederiksen’s been widely praised for her clear and concise directives, as well as showing a realistic portrayal of living with the new norm. The PM even posted a clip on her Facebook page doing the dishes while singing along to 80’s pop group Dodo and the Dodos during the nation’s weekly TV lockdown singalong – proving, she was in this with her country.
