Iceland will be lifting all COVID-19 restrictions that remain in place. Among them is a 200-person indoor gathering limit and restricted hours for bars. Iceland’s reasoning might leave some puzzled, particularly those of the liberal mindset to shut everything down.
The Ministry of Health said Wednesday that “as many people as possible need to be infected.” In a statement, the ministry said, “widespread societal resistance to COVID-19 is the main route out of the epidemic.”
“To achieve this, as many people as possible need to be infected with the virus as the vaccines are not enough” the statement read, citing infectious disease authorities. “Even though they provide good protection against serious illness.”
In addition to the end of all restrictions, which will go into effect Friday, the border restrictions will also be lifted. Reuters reports Iceland has a population of roughly 368,000 people, and 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.”
Italy has also announced it will “exit” its COVID state of emergency beginning March 31.

CIA whistleblower: analysts given money to bury covid lab-leak theory
The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic sent a letter to CIA director William Burns discussing the CIA and a COVID-19 cover-up. The letter asserts that it has knowledge from a whistleblower from the CIA’s “Covid Discovery Team” that was tasked with investigating the origins of the novel coronavirus. “New testimony from a highly credibly whistleblower” alleges that the CIA “rewarded six analysts with significant financial incentives to change their COVID-19 origins conclusion from a lab-leak to zoonosis
Apart from a “lone officer” in the group who believed the virus “originated through zoonosis,” the remaining officials agreed that, on balance of probabilities, the coronavirus was likely the result of a lab-leak.
“According to the whistleblower, at the end of its review, six of the seven members of the Team believed the intelligence and science were sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that Covid-19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China,” the letter reads. “To come to the eventual public determination of uncertainty, the other six members were given a significant monetary incentive to change their position.”
In June, the agency declassified its report that the available evidence on the origins of the coronavirus suggested it “was not genetically engineered.”
