A total of 25 new corona cases have been confirmed in Ulvik in Vestland county. A total of 53 people have been infected and placed in isolation.
There is a lot of infection tracking work going on, and many people have to be tested.
From noon on Friday, Bergen’s emergency room will provide a testing vehicle to Ulvik to increase the test capacity.

Four municipalities around the Hardangerfjord have registered cases of the mutated coronavirus.
No state intervention
The Norwegian Directorate of Health has concluded that the outbreak does not require government intervention, Director of Health Bjørn Guldvog stated on Wednesday.
There has been dialogue between the municipalities, the Norwegian Directorate of Health, the National Institute of Public Health, and regional authorities.
Two of the infected in Ulvik have been to Voss, which led to ten close contacts being quarantined, as well as their household members.
That includes students at Granvin primary and lower secondary school, which means that the school will be closed next week.
