When COVID-19 hit Norway

The unofficial story

"" is a collection of published newspaper articles and opinion pieces (in Norwegian) that question various aspects of the Norwegian authorities' handling of the COVID-19 crisis.

This collection is organized as an archive, where you can click on various contributions categorized by topic: from the official strategy to school, face masks, travel restrictions, nursing homes and long-term effects. Some of the contributions deal with more than one subject area, and therefore appear under several headlines.

The authors have contributed with their different professional backgrounds and perspectives to putting a critical spotlight on the strategy and measures implemented in the fight against the pandemic. The individual contributions are the sole responsibility of the author(s) concerned, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the remaining contributors.

A separate page is dedicated to TV host Fredrik Solvang's "Debatten" with medical doctor and researcher Gunhild Alvik Nyborg on Norwegian state TV channel NRK, broadcast on 17. March, and the massive debate it triggered.
