Three new domestic cases of the coronavirus were detected yesterday, according to the latest data from covid.is. While there were no cases on Friday, there was one quarantined case on Saturday, followed by two on Sunday, one of whom was outside of quarantine at diagnosis.

One person is currently hospitalised with the virus. 63 people are currently in quarantine, with another 33 in isolation. The 14-day incidence of infection per 100,000 people is now 7.6, down from 9.3 last week, while incidence at border screening is now at 2.5, up from 2.2 last week.

128,645 people have so far been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus as of June 11th. Note that “fully vaccinated” means at least two weeks have passed since receiving both vaccinations. 86,326 vaccinations are underway, while 214,971 people have received at least the first dose.

Further, plans are in motion for some 40,000 people to be vaccinated this week alone, RÚV reports.
