    The Norwegian was infected in China and returned home this weekend. The person is now healthy, but in the home quarantine in his own home.

    Five Norwegians recently in an infected area in Italy are now being tested for the new coronavirus.

    The five are now isolated at home in Elverum.

    They even contacted an emergency room in Norway after they had the flu symptoms, writes Eastlendingen.

    - They have been in an area in Italy where there is infection. When they got home, they contacted the emergency room just as well as told about the situation. Then we have made sure that they are now isolated and do not go outside the house. They are doing well according to the circumstances, says municipal superintendent Knut Skulberg in Elverum to the newspaper.

    The samples have now been sent to Oslo, where they will be analyzed either at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health or at Oslo University Hospital.

            The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (Folkehelseinstituttet, FHI) has introduced stricter quarantine rules for healthcare staff.

            All people working in the healthcare sector who have travelled to areas with active spread of coronavirus must now remain in home quarantine for 14 days after returning to Norway, media including VG report on Monday.

            FHI has said that the new rules are a direct reaction to an increase in infection numbers in Norway during the last few days.

            At the time of writing, the number of confirmed cases in the Scandinavian country is 19. That includes 5 people who work at the Ophthalmology department at Ullevål Hospital in Oslo.

            A health worker infected with the virus worked at the department last week after getting infected in northern Italy.
