Oslo School Councilor Inga Marte Thorkildsen (SV) is asking for new advice from national authorities after the increase in infection among children and young people in Oslo.
In the last two weeks, 49.3% of the approximately 2,500 registered corona infection cases in Oslo involve children or young people under the age of 20.
“We are impatient. We have asked national health authorities for advice… It is a challenging situation,” Thorkildsen told the newspaper Dagsavisen.
At Foss upper secondary school in Oslo, 79 students have been diagnosed with coronavirus. Teachers at the school are also infected. Earlier this week, 30 infected people were registered at Elvebakken upper secondary school and Fyrstikkalléen school.
On Thursday, 1,415 new cases of infection were registered in Norway, which is 730 more than the same day last week.
