The Institute of Public Health has so far analyzed 31 samples from suspected cases of the Wuhan virus. None of the samples are positive.

This is stated by the Institute of Public Health.

Thus, there are now eleven more that have been tested since the last update from the Institute of Public Health on Tuesday. The institute provides two weekly updates on test results related to the virus.

However, Norwegian health authorities are prepared for infections to be detected in Norway soon.

“It will not be unexpected if infection is detected within a few days,” said Trine Hessevik Paulsen at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health to NTB on Monday this week.

About 31,000 people in China and around 200 people outside China are confirmed to be infected by the virus. Around 630 people have so far died after being infected.
