The person who tested positive for COVID-19 at Vágar Airport on 4 July has been declared healthy.

According to the newest statistics from the Ministry of Health, the Faroe Islands currently have no active cases and 188 recoveries.

This weekend, the chief medical officer of the Faroe Islands told Kringvarp Føroya that they suspected the infection was an old one, and that the person had already recovered. In cases such as this, a test will still come back positive. The person was offered a test for antibodies, and if it came back positive, the person would be declared healthy.

According to the statistics, this seems to have been the case, and the Faroe Islands are once again virus free.

More than 17.000 COVID-19 tests have been conducted in the Faroe Islands.
