Progress Party (FRP) leader Siv Jensen fears the new corona measures could affect jobs in Norway. She is asking the government to ease the measures in areas where the infection is low.
There are significant differences in infection in parts of Norway and the big cities, so there may be good reasons for a little more flexibility in places where the infection is low, she told TV 2.
But at Wednesday’s press conference, Minister of Health Bent Høie (H) said that it’s impossible to know where the next outbreak could appear.
Therefore, a new outbreak could also appear in a municipality where there has been no registered infection for several months.
Jensen is also pushing for a more robust compensation scheme for the tourism industry and the municipalities.
