Only 29% of the unvaccinated corona patients in weeks 47–50 had an underlying disease, which increased their risk of a severe course of coronavirus disease.

In its latest risk report on the corona outbreak and the omicron variant, the FHI also stated that about half of those admitted to hospitals in the last three weeks were unvaccinated, even though the group only makes up a tenth of the adult population in Norway.

“Unvaccinated people who are admitted are mainly middle-aged (median age 54 years), and only 29% have an underlying disease that gives them a moderate or high risk of a serious course of SARSCoV2 infection,” the FHI noted.

At the same time, the FHI emphasized that there is an increased focus on the pandemic, which contributes to more latecomers signing up for vaccination.

“The number of administered first doses has more than doubled from week 43 to week 50, when 13,000 first doses were given,” the FHI stated.
