Covid-19 is on a quick rise in Iceland with over a hundred new infections in a few days. The Icelandic government has taken up the weather-colour system to show the severity of the pandemic. And we went to the scene where crashing waves caused a lot of damage and even endangered people and vehicles this weekend. A resident by the coastline got incredible footage of one of the waves that hit a bicyclist.
