The Norwegian government wants to wait a little longer with relief in the national corona measures, Minister of Health Bent Høie (H) said on Wednesday.
Høie has previously said that the government planned to open more of Norwegian society in the “second half of May.”
The second half of May is here, but according to the newspaper Aftenposten, the Minister of Health wants to wait a little longer to change the national measures.
“We follow the advice we receive from the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) and the Norwegian Directorate of Health, and the advice from them is that we should not implement the relief now.
“We should wait and see more the data from the weekend we have behind us, with May 17 and the long weekend. Many people have met in many places. Therefore, the FHI and the Norwegian Directorate of Health have advised the government not to implement the relief right now,” Høie said.
