The National Institute of Public Health’s (FHI) overview shows that a total of 506 cases of the British virus variant and 26 of the South African virus have been detected in Norway so far.
So far, for December, January and February, 3,248 virus samples have been analyzed at the FHI, but sequence analyzes have also been performed at other laboratories that do not emerge from the overview of the FHI.
So far, most cases of British virus mutation have been detected in week 4, with 153 cases. In the other weeks, the distribution of cases was as follows: Week 50: 5, week 51: 12, week 52: 13, week 53: 23, week 1: 60, week 2: 47, week 3: 67, week 5: 123, week 6: 3.
The samples analyzed have first given a positive result for COVID-19, after which they were tested for possible mutations.
Most cases of the British virus mutation have been detected in Viken. A total of 26 cases of the South African virus mutation have been registered in the FHI’s overview.
