The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) will look at the possibility of changing ordinary coronavirus tests so that they can detect mutations in the coronavirus.

In the UK, coronavirus testing provides answers to whether a mutated virus is present.

“The goal is to change the testing method so that all positive coronavirus tests also reveal whether one of the new virus mutations is present. 

“Then, we will also be able to use this method in the hospital laboratories,” FHI director Camilla Stoltenberg told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

An outbreak of the British coronavirus variant led to Nordre Follo closing down the municipality on Friday.
