Black Lives Matter protester in Denmark was infected with coronavirus, health minister says

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Denmark’s health minister on Tuesday urged people who took part in a large Black Lives Matter demonstration in Copenhagen to get tested for COVID-19 after one protester tested positive.

Around 15,000 people took to the streets in Copenhagen on June 7 to protest against racism and police brutality, spurred by the killing of black U.S. citizen George Floyd by a Minnesota police officer.
