A total of 172 new corona infection cases have been registered in Oslo in the last 24 hours – 6 more than the same day last week.
In the capital, 207 new cases were registered on Saturday and 172 on Sunday, the Municipality told NTB.
The country reopened on Saturday afternoon, and in Oslo, the Municipality repealed local corona measures. Only the national measures now apply in the capital – and they are almost gone.
“This means that we can stand closer to each other than one meter, and we no longer need to use face masks. This means that multiple restrictions have been lifted. This means that we can once again give each other a good hug. I encourage everyone to use public transport, cultural facilities, and make the most out of nightlife,” City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) said on Friday.
Since the pandemic started, 51,810 infected people have been registered in Oslo. The peak of infection in Oslo was on August 30 this year, with 680 cases in one day.
