A total of 344 new corona-infected people have been registered in Bergen in the last 24 hours – a new daily record. 

“We currently have no indications that this is due to the omicron variant. We have to wait for the analysis results from the laboratory at Haukeland University Hospital,” infection control chief Marit Voltersvik stated.

Voltersvik noted that 80% of the infection cases had been tested on December 1. 

“In any case, the infection situation is of such a nature that there is a need to implement the necessary measures as soon as possible, and this is being worked on. With such high infection rates and a confusing situation associated with the new omicron variant, it is very important that residents are extra careful and follow the infection control rules,” she noted.
