The first European country to lift all restrictions on COVID-19 has been named

Iceland has become the first country in Europe to lift all internal restrictions imposed to combat the spread of coronavirus infection. This is reported on the official website of the government.

Restrictive measures were introduced in the country in March last year. At the moment, 87 percent of the adult population has received at least one dose of the vaccine against COVID-19, and about 60 percent have been fully vaccinated, the publication says.

From this Sunday, residents of Iceland are no longer required to observe the social distance. In addition, they abolished the requirement to wear protective masks and restrictions on meetings.

“We are returning to a comfortable life of society and to the routine that we have been striving for,” said Health Minister Svandis Svavarsdottir.

It is also reported that from the first of July, tourists who have provided a certificate of vaccination against COVID-19 or a certificate of a previous illness will not have to take a test when entering the country.
