The daily number of new corona cases in the past week (from last Wednesday to this morning) has been as follows: 8, 10, 5, 4, 8, 2, 2, 4. NB: The Chief Medical Officer announces the number of new corona cases every morning. This number is based on tests from the previous day. There are, however, instances where not all tests are fully analysed by the following morning. Results from these tests are assigned to the day when the test is completed. This may lead to adjustments in the daily numbers after the morning announcement.

The official number of people in quarantine is 374.
