Since the start of the pandemic and up to May 12 this year, a total of 271 people in Oslo have been reported for quarantine or isolation violations, and 118 of them were punished.
In total, the Oslo police registered over 620 reports of various breaches of infection control, according to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
“We have prioritized breaches of infection control quite high in the last year,” head of joint prosecution in the Oslo Police District, Beate Brinch Sand, noted.
The police have a low threshold for reporting cases. The police have also spent a lot of time informing people about the infection control rules.
“We do not know the exact extent of breaches of quarantine or isolation. When there is suspicion of a breach, we prioritize investigating it and creating a report on it,” Birch Sand said.
