There were no Covid-19 fatalities to mourn in the Algarve, something that hasn't happened since the early days of 2021, on a day when there are 51 new cases in the region and deaths nationwide settled at 50, according to data from the bulletin of the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) this Wednesday, 24 February.
In the Algarve region, there was a decrease in both the number of fatalities (-2), and new infected (-10), compared to yesterday's bulletin.
Nationally, the lowest number of deaths in three months stands out, 50, 13 fewer than those reported yesterday. On the other hand, there were 1480 new cases, an increase from Tuesday's 1032 (+448).
In numbers accumulated since the beginning of the pandemic, a total of 800.586 cases have been diagnosed and there have been 16.136 deaths.
Also encouraging is the data coming in from Covid and intensive care wards. Today, 2767 inpatient cases are reported, 245 fewer than yesterday. In intensive care, there are less than 30 people (567 in total).
With regard to recovered, there are more than 3078, bringing to 709.054 the number of people who have already overcome the disease. This means that there are now 1648 fewer active cases, which currently settle at 75.396.
By region, Lisbon and Vale do Tejo are again the one with the largest share of new cases, 772, followed by Norte (327), Centro (198), Alentejo (84), Algarve (51), Madeira (45) and the Azores (3).
Today there are 63.402 contacts under surveillance (-7365).
