A total of 45 new corona-infected people have been registered in Sarpsborg in the last 24 hours. That is a new infection record in the Municipality.
Out of the 45 new cases, 23 have been infected in their own household, while ten were infected while visiting others, Sarpsborg Municipality wrote on its website.
“The mutated virus variant dominates, and it is much more contagious. Most infection cases start with a person taking the infection home or visiting others, and then it often leads to many others being infected,” municipal chief physician Karianne Jenseg Bergman said.
Despite the infection record, the municipal chief physician noted that there is a decrease in infection related to schools. She believes that shows that the “red” level in schools and fewer students gathering at the same time have had the desired effect.
“It will probably take another week before we see any major effect from the strict measures that were introduced throughout Viken on Tuesday,” Bergman concluded.
