Last year, 5,673 employees in the Norwegian health service were infected with the coronavirus. According to a National Institute of Public Health (FHI) study, ambulance personnel was the most vulnerable.

The number of infections was highest in the last half of the year, according to the report from the FHI, which was published in the Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association.

While ambulance personnel, cleaners, and nurses were most exposed to infection, psychologists, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists were at the other end of the scale.

If occupational groups are removed, men, people born in low- and middle-income countries, and those who lived in populous municipalities were infected most often, the report states.
