A survey shows that 59 per cent of Norwegians are afraid that someone they love will die of COVID-19. 14 per cent fear losing their lives.
Figures are from a recent survey conducted by Norstat on behalf of ABC News.
A doctor at Oslo University Hospital, Andreas Envig, says it is a natural concern to have.
“Most people know someone who is at risk. It’s okay to be worried. It ensures that people take the advice of the authorities seriously, which is positive in combating the infection,” says Envig.
Among the responses, 53 per cent of men said they were afraid that someone they love would die of COVID-19, while 65 per cent of women answered the same.
36 per cent responded that they are not worried about dying themselves or someone they love dying because of COVID-19, the disease that comes from the coronavirus.
