Four out of ten are in favor of the use of face masks in Norway, according to the Norwegian Corona Monitor from Opinion.

In the survey, 39 percent of the 3,800 respondents answered that they were in favor of wearing a face mask in Norway. This is an increase of 6 percentage points since May. At the same time, 30 percent say they are negative, while 31 percent answer neither or.

Previously, only those over the age of 60 were more positive than negative about the use of face masks. Now in July, there are more who are positive than negative in all age groups, with the exception of those between 30 and 39 years.

– “Regardless of whether you are young or old, male or female, Norwegians are becoming more supporters of wearing face masks in Norway,” says senior adviser Nora Clausen in Opinion.

  1. … being significantly/survivingly smarter than Swedes. 🙂

    From the English language Swedish online daily The Local,30 June 2020, “Coughs and racial slurs: Sweden’s foreign residents reveal abuse for wearing face masks.”

    And how dare anyone challenge Sweden’s Ättestupa coronavirus policy?

    Doesn’t Sweden *really* want Norway’s border controls removed so it can engage us in biological/coronavirus warfare?

    Death counts: Sweden, 5,593. Norway, 255.
