Even though over 51.000 have reported the possible korona symptoms, don’t think the Norwegian institute of public health that all of these actually are infected.

Paulsen shows that the testing of people with symptoms that so far is done in Norway, have uncovered a smitteprosent at under 5 per cent. It would indicate that under 2.500 of them who have registered, in fact, has been korona.

She emphasizes that selvregistreringsløsningen not, in itself, can say who of them who have reported from, who actually is infected by the virus. But it is possible to indicate whether one has been tested, something that less than 2 per cent of the registered state to have been.
