In week 48, 2,883 corona cases were registered in Norway. That is 21% less than the week before, but at the same time, 12% fewer Norwegians were tested.
In week 48, a total of 111,253 people were tested, a decrease of 12% from the week before.
The proportion of positives among those tested fell from 2.9% in week 47 to 2.6% in week 48, the National Institute of Public Health’s (FHI) weekly report shows.
R-number below 1
The R-number, the expected number of cases generated by one case, is now calculated at 0.93.
“Mathematical modeling indicates that the increase in the spread of infection has stopped and that the national trend is now most likely declining – with a reproduction figure of 0.93 after November 5,” the FHI noted in its weekly report.
In the period from October 26 to November 5, the R number was calculated to be 1.4.
