For the third consecutive day, there are no deaths in the Algarve caused by Covid-19, according to data from the epidemiological bulletin of the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) this Sunday, March 7, which has just been released.
As for new cases in the region, they increased since yesterday, but remain in small numbers (+32).
Across the country, there are now 682 more infections caused by SARS-Cov-2, as well as 28 deaths. Since February 19, that is for 17 days, registered deaths are below 100 deaths — after 42 consecutive days above 100 deaths per day.
Taking into account the increase in the number of recoveries (+966), the number of active cases continues to fall, for the 35th consecutive day. This Sunday, there are 312 fewer active cases than the day before, for a total of 61.987. It is the lowest value since November 3rd.
There are 1.414 hospital beds occupied by Covid-19 patients in Portugal (only 2 fewer than yesterday), according to the DGS bulletin this Sunday. Of these, 354 beds are in Intensive Care Units of hospitals across the country (minus 9).
This time, for the 682 new cases, the region that contributed the most was the North (+207), followed by Lisbon and Vale do Tejo (+180) and Madeira (+133). However, for these high numbers in the island region of Madeira, the DGS bulletin explains, as it had already done yesterday, that «88% of cases had a period between diagnosis and notification of more than 48 hours, due to computer complications of a laboratory in the region and which are in the process of regularization”. In other words, between diagnosis and reporting the case, more than two days passed in most cases in Madeira.
The Center registered another 100 new cases, the Algarve another 32, the Alentejo another 29 and the Azores only 1.
As for the 28 deaths, 13 occurred in the Lisbon and Vale do Tejo region, 6 in the North, another 6 in the Center, 2 in Madeira and 1 in Alentejo. Neither the Algarve nor the Azores registered any new deaths by Covid-19.
