One patient died from coronavirus in the last 24 hours in Lansdpítali Hospital. This information is stated on Landspítali’s website, where the hospital also expressed its sympathies to the family of the deceased.

This is the eleventh coronavirus death in Iceland since the beginning of the pandemic, but the first in this third wave. The most recent death had previously been on April the 19th.

It has now also been revealed by Vísir that the patient was an elderly woman, but that she was not intensive care at the time she died.

There are currently 26 patients with coronavirus in Landspítali, 4 of them in intensive care.
