The number of coronavirus infection cases increased by 45% during one week, while the number of people tested remained stable, the weekly report from the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) shows.

The infection trend is increasing, and the so-called R-number, the expected number of cases generated by one case, is 1.3.

Oslo and Viken are pushing up the number of infections, but there has been an increase in almost all of the country’s counties last week.

After a decrease in the number of reported cases since week 1, there has been an increase in the last two weeks, according to the FHI. 

Last week, 2,936 cases were reported. That is an increase of 45% from the week before and 69% from two weeks before.
