A total of 209 new corona cases have been registered in Bergen in the last 24 hours. This is the second 24-hour cases record this week.
“Due to a large number of cases of infection, the infection tracking is not complete. We, therefore, do not have complete figures that show routes of infection and sites of infection,” the Municipality wrote in a press release on Thursday.
On the same day last week, 113 cases were detected. The average for the last seven days is 110 cases per day.
Chief infection control officer Marit Voltersvik is concerned about the development and says she and her team are working on a new recommendation to the City Council.
High infection pressure
“The infection rates reported today are very high, and we see an increase in all age groups. The development is worrying, and we especially fear the consequences of the pressure on the health services,” Voltersvik said.
She says there are challenges in reaching everyone who is infected with the coronavirus.
“Increasing corona infection in Bergen leads to great pressure on the infection tracking team in the Municipality, and we are currently not able to call all the infected people.
“The infection tracers will send out SMS messages to all residents who are diagnosed with COVID-19 to ensure that all the infected people get the necessary information in a short time,” she noted.
