One positive test, ten recoveries since yesterday
After 4,653 tests, the total number of corona cases has now reached 179, of which 91 have recovered

Yesterday’s total of 177 corona cases has been adjusted to 178, and after one positive test has been registered since yesterday, today’s total is 179.

Ten recoveries were announced this morning, bringing the total number of recoveries to 91. Subtracting this number from the 179 total brings number of active corona cases to 88.

The daily number of new corona cases in the past week (from last Friday to this morning) has been as follows: 10, 5, 4, 8, 2, 4, 4 and 1. These figures, published on, are subject to daily adjustment due to occasional irregularities in testing.

One person is currently receiving treatment at the National Hospital’s corona ward, and the official number of people currently in quarantine is 344.

It is now exactly one month since the first corona positive test in the Faroes was registered. The highest number of positive tests registered in one day is 19, which was on 16 March.
