Around 80% of all corona patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) in Norwegian hospitals survived the disease.
Figures from the National Institute of Public Health’s weekly report, presented by P4 news, show that as of November 8, 273 patients have been admitted to ICUs with coronavirus.
Out of the 260 who are no longer in ICUs, there are complete registrations for 259.
A total of 13 people were still in ICUs when the weekly report was presented last week, while 50 people died in intensive care units.
A total of 16% of those hospitalized with coronavirus were admitted to ICUs. Their median age was 62 years.
“We must take this situation seriously. When we look at the development now and the dramatic increase in infection rates, we could get a situation where our health system is stretched in Norway,” department director Line Vold at the National Institute of Public Health warned.
