In the last two days, the total toll increased by 248 reported cases, according to figures from the National Reporting System for Infectious Diseases (MSIS).

Up to Thursday, a total of 860,155 people were tested for COVID-19 in Norway.

Since Thursday last week, 82,700 new people have been tested.

About 1.5% of those tested since the outbreak began have been diagnosed with coronavirus.

The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) has registered 265 coronavirus-related deaths since March.

According to the FHI, it is not always possible to determine whether the deaths were caused by the coronavirus or by complications due to the virus.
