A record 154 cases of infection have been registered in Bergen in the last 24 hours. However, the Municipality reports that this is due to a backlog in the registration of cases.
“We still have a stable number of infected people in Bergen, and there is currently no explosive increase,” infection control officer Marit Voltersvik stated in a press release.
Out of the total, 67 of those infected are close contacts, nine are cases of imported infections, and 77 have an unknown route of infection. The average for the last seven days is 85 cases of infection, and the chief infection control officer believes that the average gives a more accurate picture of the infection situation.
“The reason why the current infection rates are so high is that there has been a backlog of reported cases of infection from the laboratory at Haukeland.
“Of the 154 cases of infection that were reported today, 62 had a test date of November 13, 70 had a test date of November 14, and 22 a test date of November 15,” Voltersvik said.
