Two more individuals have died at the National University Hospital of Iceland due to COVID-19. These deaths bring the total of COVID-19 deaths in Iceland to four. RÚV reports that the two individuals were both in their seventies, one male and one female. Both died roughly within the last 24 hours.

The first death in the country related to COVID-19 occurred earlier this month, when an Australian tourist in his 30s died in North Iceland, testing positive for coronavirus. Though an investigation into his cause of death is ongoing, authorities believe it likely he died from COVID-19. A woman in her 70s died of COVID-19 on March 23 at the National Hospital in Reykjavík. She was the first Icelandic resident to die of the disease.
