Hospital admissions up as Lisbon/ north lead tally of new coronavirus infections

Another day, another bulletin: today’s showing the bulk of the 3,009 new infections localised in Lisbon (+1,156) and the north (+1,032). Good news is that recoveries are almost neck and neck with the number of new cases appearing; bad news is that ICUs are now coping with over 200 seriously ill people. During the State of Emergency, 200 patients in ICUs were seen as the ‘optimal limit to be able to reach’, so this has to be borne in mind. Red lines for ICUs now stand at 255 patients.
