This case, revealed to our newspaper, source of the Regional Health Administration of the Algarve, «is not related to any home».

This Monday, according to regional numbers, there are 1534 active cases, 64 more than yesterday.

This growth is due to the high daily increase in new cases, which was today at 136, largely due to the outbreak identified yesterday in the Prison of FaroWhere 62 prisoners and four employees tested positive for Covid-19.

Thus, the 71 recovered that were reported today were far from being enough to lower the number of active cases.
