Portugal’s Covid Risk Matrix: ‘green is back in sight’

Every day as DGS bulletins attest to an improvement in the situation, Portugal’s Covid Risk Matrix gets closer and closer to the ‘green area’ (signifying ‘plain sailing’). Today’s bulletin (click here), shows Rt and incidence taking us closer and closer to green. New cases came in at 9,851 as opposed to nearly 20,000 ‘recoveries’. Numbers in hospital are steadily falling; but deaths still have ‘some way to go’ before the rolling 14-day average of 20 authorities are aiming for before removing further restrictions.
