More than half of those asked in a survey conducted by InFact, believes it was a mistake to open the borders in the middle of July. Only 26 percent support the decision.
The survey was conducted on behalf of Nordlys, Avisa Nordland, BA, Nidaros, and iFinnmark. A nationwide committee has been asked the following question: “What do you think about the Norwegian authorities opening the borders with Europe on July 15?”.
Of this, 56.4 percent believe it was a mistake. Many men and women believe this to be an error.
Only 26.5 percent believed that the opening of the border was right, while 17.1 percent did not answer. The age group between 30-44 stands out with 65.5 percent believing it to be wrong to open the border, while the age group over 65 years of age are the most positive on the decision that has been made.
Norway still has not opened the borders to travellers from all European countries. The list of countries that are “red”, or those that would require quarantine upon arrival in Norway, is updated regularly.
