COPENHAGEN, Denmark — The Norwegian capital on Monday called off its official New Year fireworks, saying “the municipality cannot see how this should be resolved without it leading to accumulations of people and greater risk of infection,” the Norwegian news agency NTB wrote.

The city of Oslo this year had a budget of 500,000 kroner ($56,500) for fireworks and staff, according to NTB that added that the Norwegian capital of nearly 700,000 is now working on an idea to mark the New Year that is more in line with the infection control rules.
