Three COVID-19 Cases in Iceland Traced to Denver
Three of the Icelanders diagnosed with COVID-19 yesterday were found to have contracted the virus in Denver, Colorado, in the United States, mbl.is reports.
This was confirmed last night by Chief Superintendent Víðir Reynisson. Work on tracing the movements of these individuals is in progress.
Until yesterday, the vast majority of Icelanders found to have contracted the virus had been skiing in the Alps – in Italy, Austria and, more recently, in Switzerland. One infected Icelander had been traveling in Asia. The rest of the cases are local transmissions.
The total number of Icelanders infected with COVID-19 stands at 117, and close to 1,000 people are in quarantine. All the infected individuals are in isolation – two of them hospitalized, but the rest at home.
