The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) has discovered a technical error that has led to large discrepancies in registered infection rates in Oslo. They are working to resolve the issue.

On Tuesday, Oslo Municipality reported 72 new infection cases, while 35 cases were registered in the FHI’s notification system for infectious diseases (MSIS), newspaper VG writes.

Oslo reported 97 new infections on Wednesday, while the MSIS registered 38. There is thus a deviation of 96 cases in the last two days.

It is not uncommon for deviations to occur as the municipalities register persons residing in the municipality, while the MSIS registers cases at their registered address.

“We have discovered that there is a technical error… and we are working to resolve the matter,” the FHI wrote in an email to the newspaper.
