62 people were diagnosed with coronavirus domestically yesterday, Vísir reported this morning.

29 of these were in quarantine at the time of diagnosis, whilst 33 were not. The proportion of those in quarantine at the time of diagnosis is considerably lower than it has been over recent days. 1,252 people are now in isolation, compared to 1,234 yesterday and 2,375 are in quarantine, compared to 2,878 yesterday. This brings the incidence of domestic infections (cases per 100,000) down to 277.6 from 287.7.
