The total number of COVID-19 cases registered in the Faroe Islands is now 411, of which 357 have already recovered. This brings the number of active cases down to 54.

According to the ministry of health, there have been no domestic cases confirmed in the past five days, however 29 sailors aboard the Russian trawler Yantarnyy, which was docked in Kollafjørður, tested positive earlier this week, along with a traveller who arrived via Vágar Airport. In the case of the latter, it was an old infection, according to the chief medical officer, Lars Fodgaard Møller.
