– The FHI writes that cold weather, weakening of the immune system over time, and possible changes in the virus provide the best conditions for the virus to spread.
But they write that this can be counteracted by “widespread immunization in the population after vaccination, good hygiene habits, isolating the sick and less contact among the population.”
The number of vaccinators is increasing. 4.2 million Norwegians over the age of 12 have received the first dose, and more than 3.7 million have received the second dose. This is similar to the share of 78 and 69 percent of the population, respectively.
