As of today, Laos has performed a total of 6,928 tests and has found only 19 positive Covid-19 cases.
It has been 52 consecutive days that Laos has gone without a confirmed case of infection due primarily to the early countermeasures enacted by the Lao government.
Meanwhile, Laos has begun easing lockdown measures and slowly allowing more sectors to reopen as the country transitions toward the new normal.
