Health council leader Robert Steen (Labor Party) tells the channel that the municipality does not want stricter measures than the national guidelines.
– We are considering continuous measures, but we are not there in Oslo today because it will be relevant for closed schools and preschool clubs. Such measures that Indre Østfold has taken have more relative strength than they would say for a municipality as large as Oslo, he says.
In the last two weeks, the number of infections in the capital has been 22.49 per 100,000 inhabitants. But despite the increase in infections, Steen does not believe that there are alarming signals today that indicate that it should be stricter in Oslo than nationally.
