Portugal’s Covid incidence rate and Rt drop one yet another day without deaths

Monday’s bulletin shows the incidence rate an Rt number in Portugal reduce further as the last 24-hours passed without any deaths being reported on national territory. Due to the fact that the bulletin refers to Sunday’s numbers the low total for new cases (just 180) has to be taken in that context. Usually cases are ‘detected less’ at weekends due to reduced testing. But otherwise the news is positive: incidence nationally is down to 62 cases per 100,000 and Rt is at a healthy 0.96. Say all reports “Portugal is back in the green corner of the risk matrix” used by authorities to control the pandemic and introduce limits when they believe these are necessary.
