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.

Will it ever end? On Tuesday this week China’s health authority recorded its first human infection of the H3N8 strain of avian influenza. The variant was identified in a 4-year-old boy from Henan province.

According to a statement from the National Health Commission (NHC) the child raises chickens and crows in his home city of Zhumadian. On April 5 he showed fever and other symptoms, then was admitted to a medical institution five days later for treatment.

The statement indicated while it has been found in horses, dogs, birds and seals around the world, no human cases have ever been reported. Fox News reports the commission “warned the public to avoid contact with sick and dead poultry, as well as live poultry, and pay attention to hygiene.”

In March, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wrote highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses had been detected in 13 states among commercial and backyard poultry, as well as in wild birds of 14 states.

Fortunately, the agency said H5N1 bird flu poses a low risk to the public.
