The current downward trend in infection is positive, department director Line Vold at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) notes.
“It is positive that the development in the infection figures has leveled off and that preliminary monitoring results show a lower number of infected people than last week. Many places in Norway now have a downward trend,” Vold told news bureau NTB on Tuesday.
She emphasized that the government is in charge of decisions related to any relief in measures. The first relief step for the national measures will be to gradually return to the level of measures that were in force before Easter.
So far, there has been no new peak of infection after the Easter holidays.
“We are not entirely sure of the effect of Easter (on the infection situation), we need some time to pass, but it looks promising so far,” Vold said.
