Nakstad: We need better compliance with infection control advice to reverse the infection trend in Norway

Infection rates in Norway are still at a high level. “We need better compliance with the infection control advice to reverse the trend,” Espen Nakstad says.

In the last 24 hours, 4,575 corona infection cases have been registered in Norway. Despite a backlog of registrations driving the increase, never before have so many people been registered as infected in one day.

Assistant health director Espen Nakstad told NTB that the weekly figures are more reliable than day-to-day figures.

In the last seven days, an average of 2,297 corona infection cases has been registered per day.

“Worrying”

In addition to high infection rates, the number of corona patients admitted to Norwegian hospitals has risen steadily in recent weeks.

“If this increase continues, it will not be long before we reach the record level from March 2020, when the country closed down,” Nakstad said.

On Wednesday, 232 corona patients were hospitalized: 59 were in intensive care, and, among them, 35 were on respirators.

“It is worrying,” Nakstad added.

A different situation

Nakstad notes that Norway is in a different situation now compared to last year. 

“Simply because so many people are vaccinated and protected by the vaccine. This means that not as many measures are needed to reverse the infection trend now,” he said.

“The most important thing now is to get vaccinated with the third dose, stay at home when you feel sick, and test yourself if you have symptoms. If we manage that, in addition to following the local infection control advice, then it should be enough to make the infection go down.”
