Oslo Norway (By Ahmed Tanveer): Norwegians received their second vaccine dose this weekend. Thus, in total, more than one million Norwegians have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Over the weekend, 34,500 people received their second dose of the corona vaccine. That means that 1,006,268 people have been fully vaccinated, according to the National Institute of Public Health’s (FHI) statistics on Monday. At the same time, 5,617 people received the first vaccine dose this weekend. In total, 1,637,918 people in Norway received the first dose. The Oslo city council is expected to announce its own relaxation of restrictions later on Friday. Norway has had some of Europe’s lowest rates of infections and deaths since the start of the pandemic, but it tightened measures after a rapid increase in hospitalizations in March triggered by more contagious variants of the coronavirus.
Since then, rates of new infections have declined steadily, raising hopes that the third wave of infections has been brought under control. Norwegians will again be able to have 10 guests in their homes, double what they have been allowed since mid-April, and 200 can now attend indoor events with fixed seats, up from the current 100. In addition, many restrictions on participation in recreational sports will be lifted. Norway is not part of the European Union but is part of the single European market and of the Schengen travel zone. About one in three adults have received the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and roughly 15% of adults are fully vaccinated, according to the NorwegianInstitute of Public Health.
