In one day, more than 2,000 corona infection cases have been registered. “Unfortunately, we see that infection rates continue to rise,” assistant health director Espen Nakstad said on Wednesday.

The number of registered infection cases between Tuesday and Wednesday amounted to 2,126, the highest number since the start of the pandemic.

“Unfortunately, we see that the infection numbers continue to rise, even though we are a little unsure whether this is related to the fact that more people are now testing themselves. 

“When we look at hospital admissions in recent weeks, the trend is still clear – there are more and more COVID-19 patients who need treatment. The vaccine effect is not enough to reverse the trend now,” Nakstad told NTB.

“We must make an effort by following local advice, staying home in case of illness, and vaccinating ourselves in line with recommendations. Only then will we be able to maintain the normal everyday life we ​​want throughout the winter season,” he noted.
