So far this week, 37 new cases of the British virus mutation have been registered, according to figures from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI). In total, the number now amounts to 254.
The figures were revealed in an overview update on Thursday.
The highest weekly number for British mutations was in week 1, when 60 cases were registered. Last week the number was 57.
In addition, one new case of the South African mutation has been registered so far this week. The total number of cases is now three.
The English virus variant and the variant from South Africa appear to be more contagious than the common coronavirus, but they do not appear to carry an increased risk of severe disease.
