A total of 52 new cases of coronavirus have been registered in Bergen in the last 24 hours. The numbers give cause for concern, according to Bergen’s health councilor.

Out of the 52 cases, 22 people are under 20 years old, Bergen Municipality stated.

Among the newly infected, there are three with an unknown route of transmission and seven with an uncertain route of transmission.

This is the highest number of daily infection cases in Bergen since November 20, newspaper Bergensavisen writes. At that time, 68 infected people were registered.

Husa: Cause for concern

“The figures give cause for concern. Although such figures on a single day are not decisive for introducing measures, measures may be necessary if such a high level persists,” health councilor Beate Husa noted on the Municipality’s website.

A total of 1,873 people tested themselves in Bergen on Wednesday. So far, 5,650 people in the Municipality have been diagnosed with the infection since the start of the pandemic in 2020.
