A total of 30,000 Norwegians were invited to participate in a new study that will find out how many people have coronavirus antibodies.

“Many may have had the virus without being aware of it, we now want to find out how many people in Norway actually had the virus,” professor Torkjel Sandanger at UiT Norway’s Arctic University said in a press release.

The study is led by UiT in collaboration with the National Institute of Public Health and several research institutes in Norway and the United Kingdom.

“By getting actual figures on how many people have been infected, we can will also be able to say with certainty how deadly the virus is in Norway, divided into age groups,” associate professor Erik Eik Anda at UiT said.
