Norway's coronavirus death toll is 47

City lockdowns are happening all over the world. It's interesting what people are doing around the world to keep their businesses open and operating. In this video, these two Oslo bookshop owners choose to go delivery-only to keep their business afloat at the start of lockdown. Pil Cappelen Smith and Anders Cappelen deliver books wearing full hazmat suits and gas masks in order to raise local awareness of the seriousness of the situation. The global crisis is worsening. In the end, they decided to embark on one last delivery run before deciding to shut up shop completely.

In some cities around the world, people make deliveries with no hazmat suits. Some delivery persons have a simple mask or maybe even no mask. People certainly react based on how many virus deaths their city has. Some cities may have 1 or 2 or 10 Coronavirus Covid-19 deaths. New York City in USA is having one of the worst Coronavirus Covid-19 death situations right now.

Oslo is the capital and most populous city of Norway. It constitutes both a county and a municipality. Oslo was founded as a city at the end of the Viking Age in the year 1040 under the name Ánslo, and established as a kaupstad or trading place in 1048 by Harald Hardrada. The amazing city was elevated to a bishopric in 1070 and a capital under Haakon V of Norway around 1300. In 1948 Oslo merged with Aker, a municipality which surrounded the capital and which was 27 times larger, thus creating the modern, vastly enlarged Oslo municipality.

There is now a total of 50,230 deaths in the world from Coronavirus Covid-19. These countries have the most deaths:

Italy 13,155 deaths

Spain 10,003 deaths

France 4,032 deaths

  1. Sweden's liberal pandemic strategy is questioned as Stockholm death toll mounts.

    Swedes are able to go to restaurants, get a haircut and send their children to school even as the number of confirmed cases and deaths have increased.

    Among Sweden’s Nordic neighbours, Denmark has closed its borders and shut its schools, as has Norway, while Finland has isolated its main urban region.

    Why is Sweden staying open during pandemic?

    Sweden total virus death toll: 351
