The peak of the omicron wave has been reached both in terms of infected and hospitalized people, according to the National Institute of Public Health (FHI).

“The FHI believes that the peak has been reached – both in terms of infection rates and inpatients. We have seen a declining curve in terms of infection rates for several weeks – first in Oslo and Viken, later in other counties,” Frode Forland at the FHI told NTB.

In its weekly report for week 10, the FHI refers to, among other things, the decrease in the number of reported cases of infection, the number of doctor consultations, as well as data from the population surveys MoBa and Symptometer.

“There are many factors that indicate that the peak of infection is over, and now we also see it in the hospitalization figures. The same applies to the figures for hospitalized people in intensive care, which are declining cautiously,” Forland added.

On Wednesday, 534 corona patients were registered at Norwegian hospitals, a decrease of 102 since the peak on Monday last week.
