 New outbreak of Omicron strain expected in Norway

A new outbreak of the Omicron BF.7 strain is expected in Norway in January-February. According to NRK, the spread of this variant in the country was recorded by the Norwegian Public Health Institute (FHI). The possibility of an Omicron outbreak is also expected to increase the incidence of influenza, RSV infection and whooping cough, scientists said. “The burden on hospitals, including children's departments, can be heavy. If a surge of several diseases starts at about the same time, the load can be very large,” experts say.
