A total of 50 new corona cases have been registered in Bergen in the last 24 hours. Out of the total, 23 have an unknown route of transmission.
Bergen, which has recently struggled with high infection rates, has now registered declining numbers for four days in a row.
On Monday, the Municipality stated that 50 new infection cases had been registered in the last 24 hours. That is 21 fewer than the day before, 71 fewer than on Saturday, and 79 fewer than on Friday.
“We are looking forward to fewer infected people, but we must wait for the infection figures for the next couple of days before we can see if there is a clear decline. We now see an increased incidence of infection among school students in the age group 13 to 19 years,” chief infection control officer Egil Bovim noted.
Of the newly registered infected, 16 are between 13–19 years old, and 16 are between 20–29 years old.
A total of 2,120 people tested themselves for corona in Bergen on Sunday. So far, 9,231 people have been diagnosed with the infection in Bergen since the pandemic started.
