The FHI director believes that the academic basis for the shutdown of Norway was not good enough, and warns against a new closure of the country – should there be a flare-up of infection.
– “Our assessment now, and I find that there is a broad consensus in connection with the reopening, was that one could possibly achieve the same effect and avoid some of the unfortunate effects of relapse by not closing, but by keeping open with infection control measures,” says director Camilla Stoltenberg to NRK.
At the same time, she warns against shutting Norway down again, even if the infection rates should increase.
“There is, of course, a strong willingness on the part of all parties to find instruments that are more gentle and more flexible,” she says.
