Iceland’s Response to Coronavirus Pandemic
Iceland has had great success with managing the pandemic. A lot of it is thanks to its small population (364,000 people), but early and decisive action from the authorities were also a key factor. Rigorous testing and tracking isolated any infections very quickly. That testing began a full month before the first case was confirmed.
On top of that, any Icelander who wanted to take a test was able to. This huge capacity for testing was thanks mostly to the Reykjavik-based biopharmaceutical company deCODE Genetics. As of the end of May, Iceland has conducted more than 69,200 tests, or around 16% of the population. The country has had 1,823 positive cases and 10 deaths.
