There are 9 more fatalities and 205 new cases of Covid-19 in the Algarve, according to data from the bulletin of the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) this Monday, February 1st, which has just been released.
In the country as a whole, there are now far fewer new cases to report (more 5.805, when yesterday there were 9.498), as well as fewer deaths: today there are 275, below the maximum number of 303 deaths registered this Sunday.
Although the situation seems to be a little calmer, with fewer cases and deaths across the country (remember that, after the weekend, there is always a smaller number of new cases reported), the truth is that the number of hospitalizations continues to increase, indicating that the pressure on hospitals is still at very high levels.
The DGS bulletin released today indicates that since yesterday there are over 175 people hospitalized (total of 6.869), 7 more of them in Intensive Care (total of 865 patients in the Covid ICU across the country). The number of patients in intensive care has been rising for four consecutive days.
With regard to deaths, almost half of them were registered in the Lisbon and Vale do Tejo region (+149). It is followed by the Centre, with 51 more, the North, with 45 more, the Alentejo (+21) and the Algarve (+9). In the Azores and Madeira, there were no deaths caused by Covid-19.
As for new cases, Lisbon and Vale do Tejo was, again, the region with the most records: 3.370 (58% of the total). The North has an increase of +1 180 new infections, the Center 559, the Alentejo 409, the Algarve 205, Madeira 56 and the Azores 26.
On a day when the number of new cases across the country was the lowest in weeks (+5), the data on people who recovered is equally encouraging: over 805.
After all, there is now also a decrease of 2443 active cases at the national level (total of 179 180).
This Monday, February 1st, according to the DGS bulletin, there are also fewer people under surveillance (-3.638) than yesterday.
