Iceland is Proof that COVID-19 Vaccines Work

The COVID-19 situation in Iceland is proof that vaccines work, a leading US infectious-disease expert said. Infections are at record highs, but the nation hasn’t recorded a single virus death since May.

Iceland reported 2,847 new infections over the past month, mostly from the highly infectious Delta variant and mostly in fully vaccinated people, official statistics indicated. This is the highest number of new infections in a month since the start of the pandemic, but vaccines appear to be doing their job. The vast majority of new infections are mild at worst.

Of the 1,239 Icelanders who were recorded as having COVID-19 on Sunday, 3% were in the hospital, data showed.

The country hasn’t recorded a single COVID-19 death since May 25, government statistics and Oxford University‘s Our World in Data indicated.
