Trondheim’s Mayor Rita Ottervik (AP) is concerned about the new national measures that the government plans to introduce if the infection does not go down.

Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) did not present any new national measures when she spoke in the Norwegian parliament (Storting) on Tuesday. 

Initially, the municipalities have to care of the situation, but Solberg announced a tightening if the infection does not go down.

“I am very happy that Solberg emphasizes that the municipalities have to handle this. It makes sense… But I am worried that stricter national measures will be announced,” Ottervik told newspaper Adresseavisen.

Ottervik has previously said that her region has very good coordination and that it seems that other regions do not have it.

She received support from the Labor Party’s (AP) health policy spokesperson, Ingvild Kjerkol.

“I give full support to Rita Ottervik and the demand that the municipalities must get the trust they need to do the job,” Kjerkol said.
