Deaths due to COVID-19

Two deaths due to COVID-19 occurred this week in the intensive care unit of Landspítali University Hospital. The deceased were travelers visiting Iceland, one vaccinated in his seventies and the other unvaccinated in his sixties. They had both suffered from COVID-19 illness for at least two weeks before their deaths. We send our deepest condolences to their families.

Of those diagnosed with COVID-19 in Iceland since the beginning of the pandemic, a total of 32 have died.
