According to the National Institute of Public Health (FHI), the infection increased most among children and young people. In the 6–12 years age group, the infection increased by 54% last week.
The infection increased by 33% among teenagers. Children and young people now have the most reported cases of infection in relation to the population, according to the FHI’s weekly report.
A total of 309 infection clusters have been registered in primary schools, which is an increase of 182 clusters from the previous week.
Furthermore, 167 infection clusters have been registered in upper secondary schools.
The majority of the infection clusters are in Oslo and Viken. The infection clusters in upper secondary schools typically appear to be somewhat larger than the infection clusters among the younger children.
