First came the cases in the Swedish squad, now the coronavirus has also found its way into the Norwegian cross-country team.

The distance manager Espen Bjervig has tested positive and thus misses this weekend's competitions in Beitostølen.

- I felt that there was something in my body on Tuesday.

So I took a test.

It was positive.

This means that the World Cup weekend in Beitostølen is already over for me, he tells VG.

According to Bjervig, there should be no more cases in the Norwegian squad, unlike the Swedish one where Ebba Andersson tested positive and Anna Dyvik has left the squad with milder symptoms.
