One case of the British mutated virus has now been detected in Trondheim, the Municipality announced in a press release.

According to the Municipality, the person infected with the mutated virus arrived in Trondheim from the UK over two weeks ago.

The person in question has been in isolation since arrival and has now recovered.

The Municipality noted that it has full control of the infection tracing in connection to the case and that no spread of the mutated virus has been proven.

Helge Garåsen told Adressa that the Municipality specifically submitted this test to the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) because the person came from the UK over two weeks ago.

“This case shows that the system works well. Here, a person came to the country, tested himself, and went into entry quarantine and isolation. Everything has taken place according to the rules, and that in itself is good news,” Garåsen said.
