People in occupations who have regular contact with other people have a higher incidence of COVID-19. 

Drivers, health professionals, and employees at restaurants are among these professions, according to the National Institute of Public Health (FHI).

The data was presented in a new report from the FHI. 

The Institute’s researchers investigated whether occupational groups in frequent contact with customers, students, users, or patients have an increased risk of being exposed to coronavirus. The results were positive. 

Between February and July, there were 2.3 registered corona infections per 1,000 people between the ages of 20 and 70 in Norway.

For health personnel and drivers, this proportion was 3.5 to 6.5 cases per 1,000 and 3.4 to 5.5 cases per 1,000, respectively.
