Tunisia declares 'victory' over coronavirus
"We made efforts and we were able to achieve a victory," Fakhfakh said in an interview broadcast on Tunisian private channel Attasia, according to Xinhua.
"Tunisia has contained the virus, but care must be taken in order to completely eradicate the disease," the premier added.
Fakhfakh said Tunisians should feel proud of their country's "impressive" results.
After gaining control over the outbreak, Tunisia is set to open its land, air and sea borders on June 27, the official said. Travelers coming in will have to adhere to mandatory quarantine in hotels.

Tunisia's authorities imposed strict confinement measures after the first coronavirus case in the north African country was confirmed on March 2.
In May, restrictions were eased as new infections slowed, allowing retail stores, open-air markets and supermarkets to reopen. The lockdown was lifted altogether early last week following an order from Tunisian President Kais Saied.
After originating in Wuhan, China last December, the novel coronavirus has infected over 7.7 million people globally and killed nearly 430,000.
