Vaccine researcher Gunnveig Grødeland believes Norway is now on its way out of the pandemic and that the current corona measures are disproportionate.
Grødeland is a senior scientist and research group leader at the Oslo University Hospital (RH) and the University of Oslo.
“People will still be infected, and some will still become seriously ill, but we are not in a situation where this represents a threat that is greater than the common flu and common respiratory viruses. Therefore, I also think that we are now on our way out of the pandemic,” Grødeland told the newspaper Dagbladet.
She pointed out that many people have acquired immunity after vaccination or infection, protecting them from serious illness.
“Every single year, we have a number of viruses that cause respiratory symptoms to a greater or lesser degree, and their consequences are what we should be concerned about – not whether people are infected or not,” Grødeland told the newspaper.
