Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre (AP) is pleased that people can live as normal again and says it seems that Norway still has control over the coronavirus situation.

On Saturday, the government carried out an almost full reopening of Norway and removed, among other things, the one-meter of distance rule for restaurants and nightclubs.

Four days after the decision, 377 people are hospitalized with the coronavirus, of which only 35 are in intensive care. Støre is satisfied.

“I think this has been a good week where people seem to appreciate that they can be together in the normal way again. At the same time, people seem to pay attention, and there are no crowds in the places I have observed when I have walked through the city,” he told NTB.

“People enjoy being able to take back their normal lives, where nightlife, concerts, and events can work in the usual way. At the same time, we still have control over hospital admissions,” Støre pointed out.
