Twelve new cases of coronavirus infection have been confirmed in Bergen in the last 24 hours. That is almost twice as many as the day before.
“Today’s figures show an increase in infection. It is too early to determine whether the trend is rising, but we are closely following the situation,” chief infection control doctor Egil Bovim stated in a press release on the Municipality’s website.
Four of the cases are cases of imported infection, three are close contacts, and five have an unknown route of infection.
On Monday, on the other hand, seven infected people were registered, while only cases were registered during the weekend.
On Tuesday, Bergen also started offering drop-in vaccination in order to use the doses from the already opened vaccine vials. Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports that 1,549 people have already signed up for drop-in vaccination. Out of the 1,549, a total of 216 have not received a dose before, vaccine coordinator Elisabeth Engelsen told the national broadcaster.
