Eighty-nine new Covid cases
There are currently 216 active Covid cases in the country

Yesterday’s 2,126 Covid tests resulted in 89 positive cases, reports corona.fo.

This is by far the highest number of daily cases since the start of the pandemic. 

Contact tracing is still underway, and the exact infection source figures are not yet available.

Most of the new cases are registered among unvaccinated children in Klaksvík, but there are also some cases in Fuglafjørður, Kambsdalur and Tórshavn.

"We have submitted a request to the state authorities to limit contact between unvaccinated children over the coming days," says chief medical officer Lars Fodgaard Møller.
