Norway ‘could have controlled infection without lockdown’: health chief

The head of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health believes Norway could have brought the coronavirus pandemic under control without a lockdown, and called for the country to avoid such far-reaching measures if hit by a second wave.

Camille Stoltenberg, the agency’s Director General, told state broadcaster NRK that the agency’s analysis now suggested less restrictive measures would have been sufficient.

Our assessment now….is that we could possibly have achieved the same effects and avoided some of the unfortunate impacts by not locking down, but by instead keeping open but with infection control measures,” she said.
