A total of 2,075 new corona infection cases have been registered in Oslo in the last 24 hours. That is 1,053 more than the same day last week and 304 more than on Tuesday.

In the last two weeks, an average of 961 infection cases have been registered per day. The previous daily peak in infection in Oslo was registered on January 5, with 1,771 cases in one day.

Municipal chief medical officer Miert Skjoldborg Lindboe told the newspaper Aftenposten that he is not very concerned about the infection record in the capital. He believes that the situation is now completely different than before as more people have been vaccinated.

“We are now concerned with monitoring the pressure on the emergency room, GPs, nursing homes, and hospitals,” he said.

Lindboe pointed out that the oldest part of the population and those with the most underlying diseases, who have been vaccinated with the third dose, are the group with the least infection.

“So we see that the vaccines protect (people),” he added.

Infection rates are now highest in the Søndre Nordstrand district, with an infection pressure of 2,419 infected people per 100,000 inhabitants in the last two weeks.
