Sweden’s ambassador to South Africa encouraged all Swedes in South Africa to leave the country as soon as possible.
“There is no reason to stay and see what will happen,” says Ambassador Håkan Juholt.
“If you have a return trip in 14 days, make sure to rebook as soon as possible. We do not know what the situation will be in 14 days,” he added.
FHI: A matter of time
Chief physician Preben Aavitsland at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) believes it is only a matter of time before the new corona variant omicron comes to Norway.
The FHI presented a risk report on the omicron corona variant on Sunday morning.
“The risk report says that the virus will come to Norway, but we do not know when,” he told TV 2.
When the variant arrives in Norway, he believes that it will be important to offset the disease burden with measures. Therefore, it is important to see how the virus will behave in a country like Norway, which has many vaccinated people.
