COVID-19: no more new cases Monday

Now three consecutive clear days

No new cases announced in Madeira today

The Regional Secretary of Health in Madeira, Pedro Ramos, and the vice president of the Institute of Health Administration IASAÚDE, Bruna Gouveia, are presenting once again, this Monday afternoon, the update of the epidemiological bulletin for COVID-19, in Madeira.

They have announced that for the third consecutive day there have been no new positive cases.

Once again the central statistics seemed to have dropped into line with local figures, with the central Portuguese health authority, DSG, announcing earlier today that Madeira had not registered any new cases of COVID-19. According to the epidemiological bulletin of the Directorate-General for Health, the Region has the same 86 confirmed cases as previously.

Câmara de Lobos, where there have been a lot of casesMeanwhile, JM reports that tests have already started in Nova Cidade in Câmara de Lobos, where all residents will be tested with a view to screening for the new coronavirus.

Today, two blocks will be tested, ones where the cases that were transferred to Cabo Girão were detected. Today it is expected that the tests will include 150 residents, in a complex operation that may take at least three days. The action is being promoted by the Institute of Health Administration IASAÚDE in cooperation with local authorities.

JM’s website suffered outage again today, incorrectly reported as an attack on the freedom of the press in some quarters – it was just a technical random attack on their website, as has happened again with the Diario’s website this morning, and the same as has happened to this blog’s website – malicious attacks on the technology that drives the platforms. Fortunately, our new web server has been successfully withstanding this unwelcome attention.
