News Faroe Islands says ‘no active’ coronavirus cases

The Faroe Islands – an autonomous territory that is part of the Kingdom of Denmark – have “no active” novel coronavirus cases, the government said on Saturday.

The Faroe Islands – an autonomous territory that is part of the Kingdom of Denmark – have “no active” novel coronavirus cases, the government said on Saturday.

All 187 confirmed coronavirus cases have recovered, and no fatalities due to COVID-19 have been recorded, it said.

The first Faroese case was recorded on March 3, the last confirmed active case was on April 22.

In all 8,403 tests have been conducted since the end of February, over one tenth of the population.

“As a nation, we have achieved what few other countries have managed to do.

“This has been possible because people, families and organisations have been willing to transform their daily lives and take responsibility under very difficult circumstances,” Prime Minister Bardur a Steig Nielsen said.

“Our tough battle has paid off,” he said, adding “we will soon be able to get back to normal daily life as much as we can under these abnormal circumstances.”

According to him, people have respected guidelines on hygiene and personal distancing that remain in place.

In recent weeks, authorities have gradually reopened schools and kindergartens, and allowed among others hairdressers, dentists and physiotherapists to resume their activities.

Travellers to the Faroe Islands were still advised to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival.

The Faroese domestic football league expected to resume Saturday. Several matches were to be broadcast in Scandinavia.

The Faroe Islands – located in the North Atlantic – comprise about 50,000 people and 18 main islands.
