The sub has 44 people on board and over 4000 people are currently on the search.
Ministry of Health Changing Iceland’s Timezone: A new plan to help Iceland residents will come down to a talk about time. A task force was put together to investigate the health benefits in changing the timezone to make future welfare better.
