Jan Cato Holter from the Department of Microbiology has written an article about how the Norwegian SARS-CoV-2 study in a period of 7 months has evolved to becoming a national multicenter collaboration across all health regions and partners in the global covid-19 network. The Research Council of Norway has funded the project, which has produced 10 scientific works, of which 8 have already been submitted and 4 accepted in prestigious scientific journals. Norwegian SARS-CoV-2 study is now partner in the WHO / ISARIC global covid-19 network, led by the University of Oxford, together with 562 hospitals in 42 other countries. 

The article (in Norwegian) - entitled "Covid-19 forskning – globalt samarbeid og norsk dugnadsånd" is published on the Oslo University Hospital research blog "Ekspertsykehuset".
