Seven out of ten Norwegians support the government’s strict Coronavirus measures, a new study shows. Most who disagree with the measures want them tighten further.
In the survey that Østgaard and the research institute Sentio have commissioned for Klassekampen, as many as 72 percent say that the Coronavirus measures are appropriate for the situation the country is in. 21 percent want more stringent measures, while only 4 percent believe the measures are too strict.
Associate professor and head of the Center for Security, Crisis Management and Emergency Management at the University of Southeastern Norway, Jarle Løwe Sørensen, tells the newspaper that precisely the contagion curve is flattening and that Norway has fewer deaths compared to other countries, contributing to the resignation.
“The key to success has been the combination of trust in the government that has been built up over a long period of time, and a clear and precise crisis management with measures that have had an effect,” he says.
