Further lift in restrictions
When the new corona figures were announced this morning, Prime Minister Bárður á Steig Nielsen congratulated the Faroese public on "an incredibly impressive result" and hinted at a further rollback of restrictions.
"With no registered COVID-19 cases left in the country, the government will now review its exit strategy and possibly try to speed up our reopening efforts," he said.
