Blogger Jonn Arthur Aas’ post about søringene brings little new to the table. However, it is an example of oppgulpene from a few but loud voices from the region in the north. Once again it should be about us and them, and the intense combination of bitterness and anger.
sometimes these posts get to stand unchallenged. And what could delight the author more than a response from a tea-latte-drinking kontorrotte on Solli plass in Oslo?
Let’s start with the tribute of søringkarantenen. As if it is not specifically enough to mean that municipalities may “provide the complete blaffen” in the Justice department, type Aas that it means “nice little” what is allowed and not allowed.
This is not about what Aas find it too good to believe, but about how we’ve built up our community, and what rules apply. Rules we all essentially agree, in ordinary times. For example, when Aas take weekendtur to Oslo, or I visit the grandmother in Vesterålen. Freedom of movement is called.
It is not that we in the south have a glamorous healthcare with a variety of gold-plated respiratorer.
After smittevernloven we can make individual decisions about whether to impose on the people quarantined with suspected or proven infection. The question in this case is whether we should shut down fresh people in. Some will call it the deprivation of liberty, while others will say it’s okay. There, I think that the justice department, and their experienced lawyers will be able to decide and not the D-snittjuristen myself, or blogger Jonn Arthur Aas.
And so to the health services. Whether health services is located in the south or the north it will in time come to be a pressure on these. From our are built up to clear a certain number of patients. It is not that we in the south have a glamorous healthcare with a variety of gold-plated respiratorer. But yes, it works more in health care down here simply because the Oslo university hospital in norway has a slightly larger pasientgrunnlag than the infirmary at Birmingham.
It which obviously really triggers an intense, arctic anger, ambulanseflysaken. Here there is also room for nuance. Available ambulansefly was in January 96.5 per cent of full capacity. There are over normalberedskap. I’m sure that not everything is in place yet, but to call the 96.5 coverage “shaved and planed” is flåsete, improper and creates fear.

Personally, I know of the situation on the body every day. I have a grandmother in a søringkarantene-the municipality – that is over 90 years old, and not in a good shape. If she dies, I am neither sure if I will be there with her the last time, say goodbye or attend her funeral. This is not just about businessreisende to Tromsø and turistfiskere from Bærum.
It’s all about us. We in the south and in the north, is from the strangest places in Norway, and in the world. Of course we have friends and family in many regions. It hits us as families hard, and many will argue, myself included, disproportionately hard.
I think everyone, regardless of region or industry, are nervous for what is happening now. Hairdressers where you live struggling with exactly the same as where I live.

So sorry Jonn. This is, and never becomes a fylkeskamp. Koronaviruset, and its rapid spread will come to your local store for a time too. Then I hope every single hospital here in southern california are sending everything we have of extra smittevernutstyr.
It is absolutely amazing that you manage to reel off you so much to you and to the bile in one post, in a situation where we need to stand together to solve the challenge. It is simply trumpisme in northern norway.
Unfortunately, for you, Jonn, are we in the same boat and have to fight this battle together.
