Last week, 3,717 corona infection cases were registered in Norway. That is 43% less than in the peak week (week 11), the National Institute of Public Health’s (FHI) latest weekly report shows.

“In week 15, the decline in the number of reported cases continues since the peak registered in week 11. 3,717 cases have so far been reported in week 15, a decrease of 23% since week 14, and 43% since week 11,” the FHI wrote in the report.

It is emphasized that the number of those testing themselves decreased by 13% last week compared with the previous week. The proportion of positive tests is also declining.

“The decline in reported cases last week can largely be attributed to a decline in Viken (41%) and Oslo (24%).

“Together, these two counties make up 62% of the reported cases in week 15. In week 14, the corresponding proportion was 72%,” the report stated.
