Bergen Municipality registered 81 new cases of the coronavirus in the last 24 hours.
Of those infected, 52 are close contacts, 1 is a case of imported infection, 12 have an unknown route of infection, and 17 have not been mapped yet.
“We are entering a weekend with high infection rates. It is important that we stand together to stop the spread of the coronavirus, and then we need everyone to follow the measures and recommendations that apply at all times,” acting chief infection control officer Kjell Haug.
Three residents at the Lyngbøtunet nursing home have been infected. With that, a total of seven residents in three different nursing homes are now infected. In addition, 16 employees at 14 different nursing homes have been registered as infected.
A total of 2,526 people tested themselves for the coronavirus in Bergen on Thursday.
“It is good that so many people in Bergen are testing themselves now that there is a lot of infection. We remind people that they must remember to be available on the phone after they have been tested so that people working on infection tracing can get hold of them,” Haug said.
