Assistant health director Geir Stene-Larsen tells Dagbladet that the next three to four weeks will show whether Norway can lose control of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Following the recent rise in infection rates, the government has announced a brake on the reopening of Norway. Now assistant health director Stene-Larsen warns that the situation may get out of control, writes Dagbladet.
– “What worries us is that there are a number of people, especially the younger ones, follow the infection control rules so poorly that we are afraid of losing the overview,” he says to the newspaper.
Helsetoppen says the fear is that there is a covert infection. He believes the next three to four weeks will be crucial.
– “The problem is when there is a lot of people infected, and the capacity to test and detect is exceeded. When happens then, it will then be possible to loose control,” says Stene-Larsen.
