Noren moeten het tot nader order zonder alcohol doen in de horeca. De regering vreest anders dat de besmettingen met Omicron exploderen. De collega’smelden:
Norway has banned the serving of alcohol in all hospitality venues as it seeks to slow the onslaught of the Omicron coronavirus variant.
The alcohol ban , which comes among other measures, is intended to tackle a potential “contagion bomb” brought about by an Omicron wave in the country, health officials said.
The Norwegian Institue of Public Health (FHI) warned that without the new measures, the country could be facing between 90,000-300,000 new Covid infections each day.
“The omicron variant will already in December cause a wave with many sick, many hospitalisations, putting a significant burden on the health care system and society through, among other things, widespread sickness absence,” the FHI said.
