Iceland is doing well when it comes to COVID-19. Ten new cases of coronavirus were diagnosed domestically yesterday, and vaccines are underway. Recently, the 2020 crime statistics for Iceland were released and show very little change from 2019. But there are some chances in criminal behaviour, including the Catholic Church, which recently broke regulations regarding the gathering ban in Iceland… again!
