The Algarve once again does not have deaths caused by Covid-19 to be regretted, registering 18 new cases, according to the epidemiological bulletin of the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) this Saturday, 6 March, which has just been released.
As yesterday, the Algarve is the region of mainland Portugal with the lowest number of new cases. This is the third consecutive day that the Algarve region has no deaths to lament, which is a good indicator.
Across the country, there are this Saturday over 1007 new cases and 26 deaths. The number of new infections has increased over the past few days, but there is one factor to take into account.
According to the DGS bulletin, of the data presented in Madeira (which has over 288 cases), «81% had a period between diagnosis and notification of more than 48 hours».
This was due to “computing problems in a laboratory in the region, which are in the process of regularization”.
In total terms, since March, Portugal now counts 16.512 deaths by Covid-19 and 809.412 infected.
Compared to today's cases, Lisbon and Vale do Tejo are once again a region with more: 331. Madeira (+288), the North (+210), the Center (+125), the Alentejo (+26) ), the Algarve (+18) and the Azores (+9).
As for the 26 deaths today, most occurred in Lisbon and Vale do Tejo (+16), followed by the Center (+6) and the North (+4). In the Algarve, Alentejo, Azores and Madeira there were no deaths caused by Covid-19 in the last 24 hours reported.
On the other hand, taking into account that there are over 1.942 people recovered, the number of active cases dropped by 961, to a national total of 62.299.
In hospitals across the national territory, the situation also continues to improve: according to data from the DGS, until 00:00 today there were a total of 1416 Covid patients hospitalized, ie, 167 fewer than those indicated in yesterday's data. In intensive care, there are now 363 admissions, minus 20.
