COVID-19: no more new cases Thursday

No more positive cases for six days now

No new cases in Madeira todayThe 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 Thursday afternoon, the daily update on the epidemiological bulletin for COVID-19 in Madeira.

Madeira once more did not register any more positive cases of COVID-19 for the 6th consecutive day. This is since the first infection (March 16) was detected, the Region has now had a total of 15 days with a ‘clean’ record with no cases of the new coronavirus.

Airport arrival certification

The Diario reports this afternoon that at the end of a press conference that ended a few minutes ago at Quinta Vigia, the President of the Regional Government was asked about the situation of passengers arriving at Madeira Airport and about the mandatory quarantine and accommodation costs in a hotel.

Miguel Albuquerque explained that a passenger who disembarks, bringing a test, taken within less than 72 hours, made in an accredited laboratory and that says he is a negative COVID, can do the confinement at home, monitored by the health authority. This is also a way of reducing expenses.

Pingo Doce to sell masks from Saturday

The Diario reports that Pingo Doce already has disposable masks for sale in more than 400 stores across the country. In Madeira, this protective equipment starts to be sold in supermarkets in the Jerónimo Martins (“Pingo Doce”) chain as of Saturday.

The announcement comes on the same day that the Government is preparing to announce the phased reopening of the economy, following the end of the State of Emergency decreed following the COVID-19 pandemic.

This protective equipment is sold in boxes of 50 units, each unit costing 44 cents plus 23% VAT, which will then drop to 6% as soon as the rate reduction is published in Diário da República.
