During the last 24 hours, 16 new cases of corona infection have been registered in Trondheim, which is 18 fewer than the day before and 17 fewer than the same day last week.
Only one of the cases has an unknown route of infection, the Municipality stated in a press release on Tuesday.
Seven of the infected are in the age group 0–20 years. A total of 1,526 tests were conducted in Trondheim on Monday.
Infection rates have been low in Trondheim through the winter and spring before rising significantly towards the end of May. The Municipality suspects that this is due to the so-called Indian virus variant.
On Monday, Trondheim introduced several strict measures to eliminate the infection, including a maximum limit of two guests in private homes, the closure of gyms, and a ban on events.
“We now, unfortunately, have to shut down most of the activity in Trondheim to get control of the infection development,” municipal director Morten Wolden said on Monday.
Around every third adult Trondheim citizen has received the first dose of vaccine, while every fifth has received the second dose.
This week, Trondheim will receive close to 13,000 vaccine doses, which is the highest weekly number so far. From Thursday, the Municipality will start vaccinating people under 65 years of age.
