According to the Norwegian Corona Monitor survey from Opinion, only three out of ten Norwegians say they are worried about being infected with the coronavirus. That is the lowest number since June last year.
So far in September, three out of ten Norwegians (31%) said they are worried about being infected. That is 4% less than in August and is the lowest measurement since June last year.
Furthermore, 47% of those surveyed said they are worried that someone in their family would be infected, which is 5% lower than in August and is the lowest level for the entire pandemic.
“People’s concern about being infected is falling, and the trend is intensifying, especially in the last two weeks. Increased vaccination and falling infection rates affected people,” senior adviser Nora Clausen in Opinion stated.
In the survey, 30% also answered that they believe that the number of new coronavirus cases in Norway would increase. 40% believe the number of cases will decrease, while 30% believe the number will remain unchanged.
The proportion of those who expect an increase in infection has fallen by as much as 22% since last week.
