90 percent of those surveyed say they avoid socializing with close family and friends as a result of the coronavirus.

One week ago, 68 percent responded the same, writes NRK.

The figures appear in the Opinion survey Norwegian Coronavirus monitor, which has mapped the social consequences of the Coronavirus in the country since March 13.

“Slowly but surely people have realized how serious this is,” says Minister of Justice Monica Maeland (H).

Furthermore, 85 percent of those surveyed state that they have avoided traveling collectively, 74 percent have canceled or postponed vacation plans, while around half say they have stayed home from work, even though they have not been sick.

At the same time, more people are more concerned about others than themselves. 68 percent say they are worried that someone in their own family may become infected, while 39 percent say they themselves are afraid of being infected by the Coronavirus.

6,500 people participated in the survey.
