Norwegian health officials optimistic about British corona numbers: “Very interesting”

Falling infection rates in the UK despite the removal of all restrictions on July 19 have surprised researchers. Norwegian health officials call the figures interesting.

“It gives us reason to believe that the vaccination has a great effect. If it is the case that the UK has passed the top of the pandemic, it is good news for us as well,” health director Bjørn Guldvog said.

On July 17, 54,674 new cases of COVID-19 were registered in the UK, and many researchers predicted that the removal of all infection control restrictions in England would lead to 100,000 new cases of infection daily. On July 26, the number was 24,950.

On Wednesday, 23,511 new cases of infection were registered, but 131 new deaths were registered at the same time – the highest death toll in the UK since mid-March, according to The Guardian.

“Very interesting figures”

“These are very interesting figures, but they are also quite recent,” Minister of Health and Care Services Bent Høie (H) stated.

On Wednesday, the Norwegian government announced that the next part of the reopening, the so-called fourth step, would be postponed for another two weeks.

Assistant director Gun Peggy Knudsen at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) and Guldvog believe that this may signify that the peak after reopening has been reached and point to similar developments in other countries.

“We hope and expect that the numbers will be lower. The peak seems to have been reached in several countries – Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom,” Knudsen said.
