Number infected with coronavirus in Norway
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health has today confirmed that a further 23 people have tested positive for coronavirus. All the cases can still be linked to outbreaks abroad, where one of the cases is linked to Iran, one is linked to Hong Kong and the rest are linked to the outbreak in northern Italy. There are no new cases linked to the outbreak at Oslo University Hospital, Ullevål.
"We see that Norway has more positive test results than other Nordic countries. We believe this is due to Norway having tested a lot of people and many of these have returned home from northern Italy during the half-term holidays," says Line Vold, Department Director.
As of 4th March, a total of 56 people have tested positive for coronavirus in Norway. The geographical distribution of the cases is as follows:
- Agder: 3
- Oslo: 11
- Rogaland: 3
- Troms and Finnmark: 2
- Trøndelag: 1
- Vestland: 17
- Viken: 9
For 10 of the cases we cannot give information about location due to data protection and because work is ongoing locally.
