A resident at Ellingsrudhjemmet in Oslo has tested positive for the coronavirus – after receiving two doses of the corona vaccine, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.
The infection was discovered after a second sample from a fully vaccinated resident was positive. An earlier test had given a negative result, according to NRK.
Two employees at the nursing home have also tested positive for the coronavirus.
A total of 23 employees and 22 residents have been quarantined after the outbreak.
“In the future, we will closely monitor whether more residents become ill. In addition, the testing of employees and residents continues as was the case last year,” communications consultant Tone Spieler in the Nursing Home Agency in Oslo Municipality said.
