Iceland to End All Covid Restrictions Friday

Iceland to End All Covid Restrictions Friday

Iceland’s officials want “as many people as possible” to be infected to achieve “widespread societal resistance”.

According to the Science™, Iceland did everything right.

At least 93% of adults were fully vaccinated and 85% having had a booster shot. The nation masked, quarantined, and tried to stem the spread of the coronavirus. Yet, Iceland now has the highest coronavirus case count in the world.

Iceland, with a population of some 368,000 people, has registered between 2,100 and 2,800 daily infections recently. More than 115,000 infections have been logged throughout the epidemic and 60 have died due to COVID-19.

According to my calculations, nearly one-third of all Icelanders have had a coronavirus infection, with an Infection fatality rate of a low 0.05%. Therefore, it should be no surprise to rational, science-embracing people that the nation’s public health officials are jettisoning all covid restrictions this week.

Iceland’s remaining restrictions, including a 200-person gathering limit, will be lifted on Thursday night at midnight. Health Minister Willum Þór Þórsson stated that those who are sick are still encouraged to stay at home.

Willum announced the restrictions in an informal press conference just after 1:00 PM, following a cabinet meeting, where he says the decision was unanimous among ministers. Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir stated in the press conference that the lifting of restrictions is in line with recommendations from the Chief Epidemiologist.

The current border regulation has been in effect since October 1, 2021 and will expire at midnight Thursday. Travellers will no longer be required to register prior to arrival or to present vaccination certificates. Unvaccinated travellers will no longer be required to be tested and quarantine for five days.

Intriguingly, the approach the Icelandic officials is to rely on the build-up of natural immunity in its population.

“Widespread societal resistance to COVID-19 is the main route out of the epidemic,” the health ministry said in a statement, citing infectious disease authorities.

“To achieve this, as many people as possible need to be infected with the virus as the vaccines are not enough, even though they provide good protection against serious illness,” it added.

Big Pharma and Fauci are hardest hit.

Shouldn’t have to say this, but natural immunity acquired after vaccination is much better and safer than getting the virus before vaccination, for all ages.

I suspect our leaders deliberately poisoned the vaccine message because Trump is responsible for the quick development.

There are lots of people here who think Trump made a mistake, but they’re wrong. They have been played.

    You shouldn’t say it, because it makes no sense. Logically speaking, how can you obtain “natural immunity” after you’ve been jabbed? Even if you thereafter are infected, the jab ensures that no reaction is “natural”. On the other hand, there is evidence that the jabs can be so detrimental to the immune system, that it can no longer effectively react to a subsequent infection, all in the name of “preventing” an infection with a mortality rate of far less than 1%. It never made sense, and it never will make sense from a medical/health standpoint. It was, is, and always will be about control (and, if you believe the conspiracy theories, all about depopulation).

      Unnatural immunity comes from the vaccination, natural immunity comes from having CCP Coronavirus. I think the point is that risk of a serious, as in life threatening reaction, is supposedly much lower after having the vaccination. In the end, I think that having a muted natural bout of the virus, is probably a better booster than another dose of the vaccine.

        “”Unnatural immunity comes from the vaccination””

        Apparently you’re still unaware that “vaccinated” people are the ones being infected by the current version of COVID.

Finally some common sense. We are in thrall to a corrupt bureaucracy that is making money and grasping power via the virus. And we have a bizarre assemblage of governors, corrupt and incompetent. The governors of Hawaii, California and Michigan come to mind. The latter, the execrable Whitmere, had the temerity to argue when stripped of her emergency powers, that she need merely exercise the same through her Department of Health which had infinite powers to suspend laws in the name of public health.

“Iceland’s officials want “as many people as possible” to be infected to achieve “widespread societal resistance.”

What? You mean, the way God and Darwin intended? Blasphemy!

At least until the next (i.e. next winter season, with the sun low on the horizon, and the people are Vitamin D deficient). social or viral outbreak. Don’t forget your masks, goggles, and experimental medical treatments.

So much for “the science is settled” and “trust the science.” So, when Dr. Faux-Xi says he is “the science” give him a Bronx cheer.
