Bergen Municipality wants the Norwegian government to relax the strict measures in the city.
“We have a stable infection situation in Bergen,” City Council chief Roger Valhammer (AP) said at a press conference on Thursday.
He nevertheless emphasized that the British and South African virus variants give cause for concern but that there is a good overview of the situation.
The City Council now wants the city to be able to decide on local corona measures by itself.
Strict corona measures
Bergen Municipality has been under strict corona measures since February 7 in connection with outbreaks of the mutated coronavirus in the city.
Local authorities now say that Bergen and the surrounding municipalities will consider whether the special measures could be discontinued before February 21, newspaper Bergens Tidende writes.
On Thursday, Bergen registered eleven new infection cases. In addition, the mutated coronavirus was found in 18 positive samples.
In total, Bergen has registered 45 cases with the South African and 32 with the British virus variant.
