The Norway Institute of Public Health, or Folkehelseinstituttet (FHI) reported today three new cases of the United Kingdom virus variant in the country.


The people in question came to Norway from the United Kingdom in December.

Two of the people are from Western Norway, and one from Rogaland. The people are followed up by the municipal health service according to current routines. The three are in addition to the 16 cases already known. A total of 19 cases of this variant of the virus have now been detected in Norway.

FHI says this is not unexpected and expects that new cases will be found in Norway.
