Thursday Covid bulletin ‘absent’ due to work on DGS site

Yesterday’s DGS daily report on Covid numbers in Portugal has been difficult to find online due to work being undertaken on the DGS site. As we already covered in breaking news, there were 39,704 new cases and 25 deaths overall – the vast majority (15) in Lisbon, followed by the north (7). The much better news was that 30,707 ‘infected’ citizens were deemed to have recovered, thus the rolling active case load only increased by 8,342. Not so uplifting are numbers in hospital. Another 60 people were admitted in the 24-hour period leading up to the bulletin, and 15 patients passed into intensive care.
