A new survey shows that 25 percent more young adults watched live TV after the country shut down in March.

The survey conducted by Kantar and for NRK among young adults aged 18 to 25 years, shows that 40 percent watched live TV from 13 March until the infection control measures were relaxed in mid-June. That is a 25 percent increase compared to before.

The figures include online TV, such as Dagbladet TV and VGTV

During the same period, the government-held daily press conferences on the corona pandemic.

The survey also shows that half of young people have used the National Institute of Public Health and the Norwegian Directorate of Health websites to stay up to date on the Corona situation. However, newspapers and online newspapers were still most important. They had been used by 63 percent of those surveyed.
