3 new cases of coronavirus were diagnosed domestically yesterday. 2 of the diagnosed were already in quarantine at the time of diagnosis. This is a much lower figure than the Saturday, when 8 people were diagnosed with the virus, so we can hope this decline will continue.
25 people are currently hospitalised with the virus, one of whom is in intensive care. The incidence of new infections currently stands at 27.8. As the vaccine has arrived in the country today, we can hope that it will not be long before doses are rolled out.

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.
