Xenophobic abuse over COVID infections
State police civil protection chief Víðir Reynisson revealed this today and took the opportunity to emphasise that the only enemy is the virus itself and that nobody means to become infected.
Chief epidemiologist Þórólfur Guðnason confirmed that cases outside quarantine are still being identified, including three yesterday. One was in Akureyri and all three have proven hard to connect to existing group outbreaks, though contact tracing is ongoing.
One of the problems remains, he says, that some people do not go for testing soon enough after noticing symptoms. People with even slight symptoms should always stay home and book a COVID test right away, he said.
Asked how he feels after his injection yesterday, Þórólfur said he had actually hoped to feel under-the-weather today as proof that the vaccine is working as it should, but that actually he feels totally normal.
