The Liberal Party’s (V) Sveinung Rotevatn told VG that he believes the corona measures can be just as problematic as the disease. Now he wants to get rid of the home office requirement.

“We have received so much positive corona news in recent weeks that it is now time to give people the freedom,” Sveinung Rotevatn told VG on Tuesday.

On Monday, more than 18,500 corona cases were registered in Norway, 7,500 more than last Monday. Nevertheless, the number of intensive care patients has fallen to 67, which is almost half as many as the level at the infection peak in December last year.

Rotevatn believes that the figures for hospital admissions and intensive capacity show that the systems hold up well, even though many people are infected.

“Intrusive measure”

“The government should remove the requirement for home office as soon as possible. It is a very intrusive measure, which affects an awful lot of people,” he stated.

On January 13, the government announced it would keep the home office requirement in place, following advice from the professional authorities.
