In the last 24 hours, 103 new cases of corona infection have been registered in Bergen Municipality. That is 27 more than the day before.

Out of the total, 62 are close contacts, six are cases of imported infection, 25 have an unknown route of infection, and ten have not been mapped. A total of 2,947 people tested themselves on Monday, the Municipality wrote on Tuesday.

“Everyone who has been to a party at Marmorøyen on Tuesday the 3rd or in Skjoldbukta on Friday the 6th of August is encouraged to get tested. There is an unknown number of infected people linked to the parties, and many of the young people who participated can not account for their close contacts as there were many unknown people gathered at both parties,” infection control officer Egil Bovim stated.

Around 100 people were allegedly present at both parties.

The newspaper Bergensavisen reports that Bergen Municipality is in dialogue with the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) about the infection situation.

“We have to look at whether we are doing the right things,” Bovim added.
