At midnight, a total of 11,876 people infected with coronavirus were registered in Norway, preliminary figures show.

That is an increase of 121 cases in the last 24 hours.

In the last two days, the total figure increased by 244 reported cases, according to figures from the National Reporting System for Infectious Diseases (MSIS).

Up to Wednesday, a total of 845,522 people had been tested for the coronavirus in Norway.

Since Wednesday of last week, more than 83,000 people have been tested.

About 1.5% of those tested since the outbreak started have been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

It takes one to two days from when an exam result is available until it is registered in the MSIS.

Thus, the figures can provide a misleading picture of the infection situation, as they don’t show when the sample was taken – only when it was registered.

As of Thursday, a total of 11 people are hospitalized due to COVID-19.

The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) has registered 265 corona-related deaths in Norway since March.

According to FHI, it is not always possible to determine whether those infected with the coronavirus died due to or with COVID-19.
