The proportion of Norwegians who support the government’s corona measures is falling. Health director Bjørn Guldvog understands that people are tired but asks the population to persevere.

Guldvog says that Norway has had a sharp decline in the number of infection cases since the New Year but that the new mutated variants create great uncertainty.

Therefore, strict corona measures have also been introduced in the country. 

According to the newspaper VG, 59% of Norwegians support the measures that have been implemented, and the support is lowest in the youngest age group.

No guarantees

“There are very many who are very tired (of the measures), and we naturally understand that. This is reflected in the changed support,” Guldvog noted.

“In between 100 and 150 days, I think that the lives we have will be very different than what we have today. Of course, I have no guarantee for this, because there may be things that happen that cause us to make new changes,” he added. 

“That is something to look forward to,” Guldvog concluded.
