The 1 country in the world with zero COVID-19 deaths since vaccinations

The country that hasn’t recorded a single COVID-19 death since May 25 when vaccination began on the land, according to government statistics and Oxford University’s Our World in Data is Iceland.

Even though Iceland reported 2,847 new infections over the past month, mostly from the highly infectious Delta variant, and most in fully vaccinated people, according to official statistics, the highest number of new infections in a month since the start of the pandemic, not a single vaccinated person has died of the infection as the vast majority of new infections are mild at worst.
