The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) now estimates that around 2% of the Norwegian population has been infected with the coronavirus. At the same time, about 3% of people have been vaccinated with the first dose.

In its latest modeling report, the FHI calculates that 114,092 people in Norway have had COVID-19. That amounts to 2.1% of the Norwegian population of 5.38 million.

There are over 60,000 confirmed cases, while the FHI estimates that this only accounts for 55% of the total number.

According to the FHI, it is reasonable to assume that most people who have had coronavirus have a lasting immunity that lasts for more than six months. 

Latest figures

Current regulations give people who have had the disease an exemption from quarantine for six months after testing positive.

The latest figures for those vaccinated in Norway show that 160,076 people have received the first dose of the corona vaccine. That makes up 2.98% of the population. 

A total of 38,100 people have received two doses and are thus fully vaccinated.
