The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) believes that more studies are needed to determine whether the British mutation of the coronavirus is more deadly than the common coronavirus.

According to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, there is some evidence that the virus mutation is more deadly. 

Johnson made the announcement at a press conference in Downing Street on Friday.

Line Vold, department chief for infection control and emergency preparedness at the FHI, told news bureau NTB that there is uncertainty associated with the findings because they are based on limited figures.

“Based on these analyzes – we do not know with good enough certainty whether the virus can lead to increased mortality or not,” Vold said.
