In today’s Newscast, we go over the Kári Stefánsson situation: the CEO of deCODE Genetics has now announced that the company will no longer participate in the border screening programme. We also discuss fears over possible mass unemployment this autumn and of course the Netflix’s new movie about Iceland’s love affair with Eurovision.

Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
