The picture of the actual coronavirus infection situation in Norway may be wrong due to the fact that the testing during Christmas is different, the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) believes.
“The testing pattern is different… There is reduced testing in some places,” department director Line Vold at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) told TV 2.
She also pointed out that people may have other reasons than usual to test themselves during the Christmas holidays.
“Some may test themselves for safety’s sake because they are going to travel and visit someone.
“So the results from this week will not be comparable with the figures from previous weeks,” Vold continued.
