Iceland stated on Friday that it will lift all remaining COVID-19 limitations, stating that more individuals ought to be subjected to the virus in order to create natural immunity and eliminate the pandemic.
“Widespread societal resistance to COVID-19 is the main route out of the epidemic,” Iceland’s Ministry of Health said in a statement released Wednesday declaring the lifting of border restrictions and limits on public meetings.
“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,” the ministry added.
Icelanders will no longer be compelled to adhere to curfews or restrict public gatherings to less than 200 individuals as of Friday.

Despite imposing social gathering restrictions during the pandemic, Iceland has defied its European neighbors by rejecting to introduce vaccine passports.
According to Worldcrunch, Iceland’s choice to avoid controversial policies was “a conscious choice in a small nation to try to avoid conflict in society.”
As European countries and large U.S. cities started deploying COVID jab passport programs last year, Iceland’s Chief Epidemiologist Thorolfur Gudnason warned there was “no basis” for the small Nordic country to jump on board and create a two-tiered community.
Conversely, in Europe and the United States, forced COVID jab regulations have exacerbated societal tensions. Top-down mandates have resulted in the dismissal of unvaccinated employees, the exclusion of individuals from public spaces, and the rift amongst family members.
Vaccinated respondents in 21 countries harboured substantial antipathy toward the unvaccinated, according to a recent survey from Danish researchers, regardless of the actuality that vaccine tests haven’t ever generated proof that the injections cease infection or transmission, and there is compelling evidence (read the document below) that the “vaccinated” are often just as likely to carry and spread the virus as the unvaccinated.
If infection rates continue to rise, it’s uncertain if Iceland will reintroduce COVID regulations.
Over a dozen additional countries have lifted part or the whole of their COVID mandates and prohibitions in recent weeks and months.
The sudden lifting of authoritarian public health regulations has many people speculating if the limitations will be lifted permanently. COVID mandates have been revoked by some governments in the past, notably Israel, only to be re-applied subsequently.
