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.
