According to chief physician Preben Aavitsland at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI), the infection trend seems to have reversed, but the developments are still very unstable. 

He expects full vaccination by the end of July.

There is a very different infection situation in different parts of the country, Aavitsland explained to the newspaper VG.

“Some areas in Eastern Norway, such as districts in Oslo and Drammen, have infection pressures on a par with the worst-hit countries in Europe. At the same time, most places in Norway have almost no cases.”

The infection trend in Norway seems to have leveled off. After rapid growth in early and mid-March, the number of new corona infection cases has stabilized at around 1,000 new cases per day.

Aavitsland told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) that he thinks everyone over the age of 18 will have had the opportunity to be fully vaccinated by the month of August.
