A total of 24 new coronavirus infection cases have been registered in Bærum in the last 24 hours. That is 14 more than the average last week.
The average for the last week was ten new infections, which is also the average for the last 14 days.
On Monday, the Municipality wrote on its website that the mutated British virus had been detected in several places in Bærum, and there are many indications that it may become dominant in the future.
The consequence is that the epidemic may become more difficult to control.
“When we detect an outbreak, we must get the outbreak under control as soon as possible.
“In line with the clear guidelines from the National Institute of Public Health (FHI), we therefore strongly encourage household members to carry out quarantine until the relevant close contacts have received a negative test result,” municipal chief medical officer Frantz Leonard Nilsen noted.
A total of 1,994 people in Bærum Municipality have been diagnosed with COVID-19 during the pandemic.
