A total of 5,105 people were tested for the coronavirus in Oslo on Monday. That is 759 more than the last time a test record was set.
“I am very happy that Oslo continues to take responsibility during the corona pandemic. Testing is one of the most effective tools we have to gain control over the infection situation,” City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) noted in a press release.
The testing station at Adamstuen tested 917 people, which was the highest number in the city.
“Higher testing numbers also mean that we can expect high infection numbers in the coming days,” Johansen said.
The previous testing record, which was 4,346 tested people in a day, was set on Thursday, February 18, just before the winter holidays started in the capital.
On Monday, 137 new corona infection cases were registered in Oslo.
