Confusing antivirus advice from cyber security experts

In this post on cyber safety from Tech Solidarity one thing stuck out to me:

“11. If you have a Windows laptop, uninstall any antivirus products except for Windows Defender (from Microsoft).”

I’m reading that these days Defender can be as good as Norton for regular user but surely for people who needed high security something like Norton would be better? Or not?

I don’t know but I don’t really want to keep paying for Norton if it’s actually worse for me than Windows Defender. Any advice from someone who actually knows why that is would be awesome.
