Schools in Denmark started reopening on Wednesday, after a month-long closure over the novel coronavirus, according to an AFP correspondent.

The Nordic country is the first in Europe to start opening up nurseries, kindergartens and primary schools after they were closed on March 12 in an effort to curb the COVID-19 epidemic. 

However classes are only resuming in about half of Denmark's municipalities and in about 35 percent of Copenhagen's institutions, as others have requested more time to adjust to health protocols still in place.
