Bergen City Council will spend 36 million kroner on emergency preparedness in advance of a potential new corona outbreak.
“In connection with the first-quarter report, the City Council decided that 14.5 million kroner should go to measures to prepare for a possible new wave of infection,” says Health Councillor Beate Husa to Bergens Tidende.
In addition, the City Council plans to allocate 20.9 million kroner to continue the measures in 2021.
Money is allocated to five measures, which include emergency storage, staff strengthening, increased test capacity, digital solutions and a so-called corona team.
“The corona team consists of key people who have acquired special experience and expertise related to the corona outbreak,” says the Health Council.
