  1. Meanwhile, Nattavisen has just accused some hospitals of not releasing information/statistics like this/these.

    In any case, this apparently potentially very deadly epidemic is just starting to take off in Norway.

    Note the healthcare worker wearing a professional mask/hood. Those should be reserved *for* healthcare staff, but even everyone wearing generic or homemade masks could do much to curb the epidemic as was seen in China (which is now offering massive mask supplies to the West).

    I ask readers to consider my case for everyone wearing some kind of facemasks in my comment underneath the article about King Harald urging us all to think and take care of each other.
