In the last 24 hours, three new cases of the mutated British coronavirus have been discovered in Norway: in Viken, Agder, and Ullensvang in Western Norway, newspaper VG reports.
All three infected people came to Norway from the UK just before Christmas, similar to the two cases that were discovered on Sunday.
Thus, a total of five cases have been detected in Norway.
“The people in question will now be quarantined and will be followed up by their municipalities.
“We will assist them and ensure that they are followed up in accordance with the current guidelines,” department director Line Vold at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI ) noted in a press release.
