In the survey, 1,704 people who have been quarantined or isolated have been asked if they have followed the rules. Only 42 percent answer that they carry out the quarantine period according to the book, reports NRK.

Among those who do not stay at home, a third have symptoms. Only a quarter of those who do not have symptoms follow the quarantine rules.

The survey shows that those who most often break the rules are those who are over 50 years old. 76 percent of those between the ages of 50 and 69 have broken the rules at least once.

“There has been a lot of talk about young people partying, but in our data, it is the young people who are by far the best at complying with quarantine and isolation”, says professor of health economics at UiB, Bjarne Robberstad, to NRK.

The survey is considered representative of Norway’s population and is the first part of a large survey on how Norwegians have reacted to the corona pandemic.
