The Norwegian government will violate the law if it does not immediately ease the corona measures, according to law professor Hans Fredrik Marthinussen.
“For safety’s sake, we have strict measures. But when even the FHI says that the cost is greater than the benefit, then the measures must be repealed immediately,” he told the newspaper Dagbladet, referring to the Infection Control Act’s requirement of proportionality.
Minister of Health and Care Services Ingvild Kjerkol (AP) announced on Wednesday that there would be “significant relief” next week.
On the same day, FHI director Camilla Stoltenberg said that the National Institute of Public Health now recommends a rapid phase-out of the measures, as the omicron variant does not cause serious illness among Norwegians.
