Where daily numbers are concerned, there were 2,167 recorded domestic cases of the coronavirus in Iceland yesterday, 19% of whom were in quarantine at diagnosis. There were an additional 14 reported cases at the border.

201 are in border screening quarantine, with 9,619 in quarantine and 9,734 in isolation. There are currently 38 people in hospital with the coronavirus and three in intensive care.

286,252 people aged five and older have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus as of February 9th, comprising 81% of this age group, or 78% of the total population. 199,808 have also received booster shots.
