On 11 April, there was no active cases of coronavirus recorded in Greenland, an autonomous territory under the Danish crown which Donald Trump had hoped to acquire, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Eleven people who had previously tested positive for coronavirus have since recovered and no new cases of COVID-19 have been reported on the territory so far, according to the national medical office in Denmark, as cited by Inquisitr. However, some test results are still reportedly pending in the island, which is home to approximately 57,000 people.

According to an earlier report by EUobserver, all the previous cases of coronavirus have been recorded in Greenland’s capital, Nuuk, which has been closed for some time now for people to enter or leave without a special permit. The island has imposed strict travel restrictions around the territory, with some movement only allowed between small cities and villages.

“On Friday it will be two weeks that we have been careful and still nobody here shows any signs of illness. If nobody is infected, I think it will be sensible to allow a more relaxed way of being together here in Saattut, but I don't know what the plan is. Perhaps they will relax the rules after Easter,” Apollo Mathiassen, a local fisherman from Saattut village, told EUobserver.
