Key figures for Norway
Total number in Norway since February 2020 (cumulative figures):
20.04.2021: Figures showing the number of people tested and the number and proportion of positive results among these have been updated. The figure shows data from 1 April 2020. The positive cases in this figure are now based on reported cases to the Communicable Diseases Notification System (MSIS). There are therefore some adjustments in the data compared to the previous figure. In the period before 1 April 2020, the number of tests was based on data collected from the microbiological laboratories that analysed SARS-CoV2 samples during this period. The total number of tests in this period is 102,560.
The laboratory results are collected in the MSIS Laboratory Database. Each laboratory in Norway submits data electronically directly to the database. The figure below illustrates the number of persons tested and the proportion of positive test results among these daily since 1 April 2020.
"Number of people tested": A new test on a person is defined as a test performed at least 7 days after the previous test on the same person. If the person is tested again after 7 days, they are counted as a new person. Figures from the last few days may be adjusted with the next update.
The figure below shows the number of cases reported daily in Norway since the start of the epidemic. The cases are displayed by the specimen collection date. There are 1-2 days delay between diagnosis and registration in the Norwegian Surveillance System for Communicable Diseases (MSIS). The number of cases is updated retroactively when new notifications arrive.
By sex and age
The figure below shows the total number of confirmed cases in Norway since the epidemic began, by age and sex.
The maps below illustrate the number of reported COVID-19 cases by county and the reported rate by 100 000 inhabitants.
The map shows the number of reported COVID-19 cases by municipality.
The figure is updated with the number reported by midnight on the previous day. Cases in MSIS are registered geographically and are based on the address in the population register. Therefore, there may be more cases reported in a municipality in MSIS than the municipality is aware of. MSIS also receives notifications that are not sent to the Municipal Medical Officer.
If you cannot find a municipality in the list, it means that MSIS has not yet received any notifications about people registered in that municipality.
The figure below illustrates the number of new patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 as the main reason for admission.
Intensive care admissions
The figure below illustrates the number of patients with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 admitted to intensive care.
COVID-19-associated deaths, by age and sex
The figure below illustrates the number of COVID-19 associated deaths notified to the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, divided by sex and age group.
