In Norway, the worst infection situation is in Oslo, where 5,166 infections have been recorded throughout the epidemic. There are 4,296 registered in Helsinki. The population of the cities is approximately the same, more than 630,000 people.
Strict corona measures are in place in the Oslo area. Private gatherings of more than ten people are prohibited, and face masks should be worn on public transportation unless it is possible to keep a meter away from other people.
There will be a maximum of 50 participants for indoor events and 200 for outdoor events.
The measures were decided to continue on Thursday and will remain in force until further notice, he says VG.
In the past week, 321 new infections have been reported in Oslo. This is about the same number of infections as In Helsinki last week, or 388 infections.
– Most infections come from gatherings between individuals, so it is important that people continue to restrict social contacts and gatherings, City Council Director Raymond Johansen said at a news conference.
In the municipalities around Oslo, regulations and recommendations vary somewhat. For example, in the municipalities of Aurskog-Høland and Rælingen, private gatherings of up to 20 people are allowed. In the municipality of Gran, the mask must be worn if traveling by public transport to or from Oslo. The municipality of Lunner recommends avoiding the use of public transport on the way to Oslo.

At the time the restrictions were eased, infections were on the rise in only seven municipalities in Norway. On Monday, however, growth was already observed in 24 municipalities, he says VG.
