Four new cases of coronavirus were diagnosed domestically yesterday. Of these, two were already quarantined at the time of diagnosis. This is the second lowest number to be diagnosed in a single day since the 13th of September, suggesting that the curve has been successfully flattened by the latest measures.

Sadly, a further death was reported by Landspítali yesterday afternoon, bringing the total death toll to 26. The Grapevine offers its condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.

52 are currently in hospital with the virus, 4 of them in intensive care. The incidence of domestic infections is now down to 50.7.

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.
