Covid-19: Algarve only region where Rt is above 1

With the region filling up for the summer, the Algarve remains the only area of Portugal where transmission of Covid-19 is above 1. To be precise, Rt is standing at 1.2 in the Algarve, while every other area of the country has transmission (nicely) under 1. Nationally, the Rt has been given this week as 0.88, with averages for daily case numbers now down to 11,166. Co-participation of the State when it comes to rapid antigen tests in chemists will continue through July, as long as people taking the tests have a prescription from the SNS.
