The head of Norway’s Oil Fund, Nicolai Tangen, is infected with the coronavirus but has mild symptoms.
On Thursday afternoon, several Norwegian media reported that Tangen tested positive for coronavirus.
The Oil Fund’s manager confirmed the news on LinkedIn.
“Today, I tested positive for COVID-19. I took the test yesterday afternoon after feeling a little out of place, but the symptoms are mild.
“This means that I am now isolated in my apartment in Oslo, where I will work from for the next couple of weeks,” Tangen wrote.
“I’m not sure where I got infected. Norges Bank’s good routines will be followed, and those of my closest colleagues who had meetings with me have been quarantined.
“Feedback so far is that they all feel ok. Everyone who has been in contact with me has been informed,” Tangen added.
