A survey that health director Bjørn Guldvog referred to during Wednesday’s coronavirus press conference shows that one in three Norwegians struggles to keep a one-meter distance from others.

Two out of three still support the coronavirus measures that have been introduced. 

Nine out of ten state that they follow the advice on infection control and that it is important to be tested if you have symptoms.

“This week, our regular population survey shows that Norwegians are motivated to be vigilant when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic. This clearly shows that most of us are willing to do what is necessary for us to get through this,” Guldvog said.

Furthermore, the survey shows that one in three has problems keeping the distance of one meter in everyday life and that eight out of ten say that they will stay at home if they are ill, even if they only have mild symptoms.

“It is clear that we are tired of the coronavirus and wish it would be over soon – but we are actually not as tired of the measures as many think,” the health director noted.
