Currently, there is talk about a three-digit number of people who may be infected, explains Brita Øygard, The Director for The Agency For Health Services in Bergen Municipality, Informs Bergens Tidende.

The authorities are now trying to work out where these people have been. 

-” The infection detection work is not done yet. We believe that there will be well over a hundred in quarantine when we are finished.”, she says.

The Municipality is aware that the infected have been at training centers, malls, and used public transportation, They are now working to round up those who have been in contact with the infected. 

-” I do not know if we will be able to get them all today.”, she says.
