There is a need for a national system for infection detection, according to the head of the infection control office in Bergen, Egil Kaberuka-Nielsen.

People who test positive for the Coronavirus are required to notify close contacts. But there is no requirement that the municipalities must cooperate to track the infection.

– “The infection does not stop at the municipal boundaries,” says the head of the infection control office in Bergen, Egil Kaberuka-Nielsen to Bergens Tidende.

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) confirms that there is no national system for infection detection.

– “There is no guarantee that a municipality will be notified, but we have recommended that the municipalities inform each other,” says chief physician Tone Bruun at NIPH.
