Fermanagh and Omagh continue to have the lowest number of coronavirus cases in Northern Ireland, with one of the main factors being its rural location.
The council district has recorded just 16 deaths related to Covid-19 since the outbreak began, according to the latest Northern Ireland Statistic and Research Agency (NISRA) figures.
The area with the second lowest number of deaths is the neighbouring district of Derry and Strabane with 27.
This compares to 209 deaths in Belfast, 73 in Antrim and Newtownabbey, 72 in Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon, and 67 in Lisburn and Castlereagh.
In Ards and North Down and Causeway Coast and Glens the figure is 59 apiece, with 46 in Mid and East Antrim, 44 in Newry Mourne and Down and 33 in Mid Ulster.
The total number of fatalities in the province for the week up to May 22 stands at 705.
Dr Josephine Deehan, a GP at Strule Medical Practice and an Independent councillor for the Omagh area, said the majority of people live in dispersed rural communities and that they had been very good at adhering to government advice on shielding, social distancing and hygiene.
Dr Deehan, who is based in Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex which houses four GP practices, said early intervention had also been key.
She said: "We introduced lockdown procedures at a very early stage in the outbreak. We minimised face-to-face consultation as far as possible and have been very proactive in getting PPE equipment.
"However, I feel our nursing home residents did lose out ….and it's not confined to Fermanagh and Omagh but throughout the UK, and that is a source of regret.
"From very early on, I had people contacting me - domiciliary care workers and people who worked in care homes - really desperate for PPE and in my role as a public representative I tried to highlight that but I think we were just a little late in getting that in place …and that saddens me greatly."
She also urged people not to become complacent or let their guard down.
"Overall, we are very thankful our numbers have been small. But each premature death is a source of great pain and sadness for the affected families," she added.
Meanwhile, a GP in Co Tyrone has said he believes a new approach to patient treatment is needed as coronavirus cases decrease.
Dr Brendan O'Hare, a senior partner and GP with Western Rural Healthcare, which covers three GP practices, said the last positive Covid diagnosis they had seen was "six or seven weeks ago".
He said what concerned him more now was serious illnesses going untreated or undiagnosed.
Dr O'Hare said that in the past two weeks he had seen two late cancer diagnoses and a man whose finger had to be amputated because it was so badly infected.
"Covid poses an incredibly low risk to anyone around here at the moment but undiagnosed or untreated serious illness is something that worries me a lot more," he said.
"I feel the number of face-to-face assessments has to be allowed to increase safely.
"The mode we are in was appropriate six or eight weeks ago but it is not at the moment."
Referring to the low levels of cases in the area, Dr O'Hare said that as part of the coronavirus response in the area, a number of patients were screened by GPs and "we managed to keep about two-third out of the hospital service".
He added: "It has been so successful that we are winding it down because the levels are so low.
"I can honestly say that in the Omagh, Fermanagh, west Tyrone area, Covid is almost eradicated.
"We haven't seen a case in weeks."
