Among the 173 corona patients who have been admitted to Norwegian hospitals in the last four weeks, 27.2% were in the age group 30–44 years.
That group is followed by the age groups 45–54 years (18.5%), 18–29 years (14.2%), and 55–64 years (12.1%). The median age is 46 years.
Among the patients whose data can be linked to the Communicable Diseases Message System (MSIS), 109 of 167 were unvaccinated, 24 were partially vaccinated, and 34 were fully vaccinated. Among the fully vaccinated, the median age was 74.5 years, and 22 of them belonged to risk groups, according to the National Institute of Public Health (FHI).
A total of 58 new hospital admissions were reported last week – an increase from 46 the week before.
According to the FHI’s model, the R-number has amounted to 1.4 since August 7. If the current infection trend continues, the model expects between 30 and 65 new hospital admissions per day in three weeks.
