In the last two weeks Oslo has registered 22.49 infected per 100,000 people. Thus, the infection rate being higher than the requirement FHI sets for other countries and areas.

This is according to VG, who have seen the overview of the figures. It shows that 156 infections have been registered in the Municipality of Oslo in the last two weeks. As of January 1, 2020 there were just over 693,000 inhabitants in the municipality.

The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) requires other countries that there must be less than 20 infected per 100,000 people in the last 14 days for them to be “green”, i.e. that you are released from the requirement of quarantine when entering and leaving the country.

This weekend, 40 people were confirmed to be infected with Corona after house parties at the western edge of Oslo.

-”it has been a general trend in the entire population that it has been a little looser in regards to rules this summer.”, said Infection Control Chief, Frode Hagen, in a press release from the Municipality of Oslo.

  1. FHI and the government … and the rest of us … have been coasting on the success of the extreme lockdown, but now the virus is rallying and coming back, and it is time to GET SERIOUS and require everyone to mask up out in public and in schools and barnhages/daycares and to ventilate/exchange with outside air whenever and wherever possible. … as well as social distancing wherever possible and sanitation always.

    … while there may still be time to do so … since no one knows who is infected when they are already contagious.

    It can still spread like wildfire, and it is still as lethally dangerous as before.
