Press Agency Lusa reports that Portugal is the seventh country in the European Union with the lowest number of deaths and new daily cases of infection by COVID-19 per million inhabitants, according to the statistical website Our World in Data.

Since last week, the epidemiological situation has slightly worsened and the country now has a daily average of 208 cases, against the previous 140 cases, going from sixth to seventh EU country with fewer new cases.

Performing better than Portugal are Finland (198), Italy (155), Romania (152), Malta (141) Spain (102) and Sweden (88).

In new cases, Portugal remains below the European average of 442 and far from the countries with the most new daily cases of infection per million inhabitants in the last week, a list led by Slovakia, with an average of 1,810 cases, followed by Slovenia with 1,550, Austria with 1,530, the Czech Republic with 1,400 and the Netherlands with 1,230.

These member states also top the list of the five countries with the highest average of new daily Covid cases in the last week in the world, with the world average standing at 69 cases.
