No new domestic cases of the coronavirus were detected yesterday, according to the latest data from covid.is.

One person is currently hospitalised with the virus. 57 people are currently in quarantine, with another 30 in isolation. The 14-day incidence of infection per 100,000 people is now 6.3, down from 7.6 yesterday, while incidence at border screening is now at 2.5, where it was yesterday.

138,517 people have so far been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus as of June 15th, marking an increase of about 10,000 people from last week. Note that “fully vaccinated” means at least two weeks have passed since receiving both vaccinations. 85,674 vaccinations are underway, while 224,191 people have received at least the first dose.
