UPDATED 24 MARCH: The Norwegian Prime Minister has announced the extension of the country’s emergency measures up to and including Easter. The most drastic set of measures ever seen outside of wartime aim to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Millions of Norwegians and foreigners living in or visiting Norway have been impacted by a drastic set of measures announced by Erna Solberg earlier in March. Norway essentially shut itself down for two weeks, in a bid to stop the rapid spread of the coronavirus and COVID-19 disease.
At the time of writing 12 people have died in Norway from the disease. Given the higher numbers of hospitalised patients, many in intensive care, that number is likely to rise. More than 2,500 people have tested positive for the virus, but not everyone with symptoms is being tested.
Norway extends emergency measures
UPDATE: Prime Minister Erna Solberg has today (24 March) announced the extension of all emergency measures up to and including Easter. They will now apply to 13 April.
“I want to thank everyone who has followed the authorities’ advice, and like everyone else, I look forward to returning to everyday life. We believe that the new figures from FHI show that the corona measures work. Therefore, the corona measures are continued until Easter, until April 13,” said Solberg.
“Unfortunately, the government’s decision today places severe restrictions on our everyday lives, but we do it for everyone we love,” she added.
