There are today 56 more recovered cases to report. The RAM now counts 12,819 recovered cases of covid-19, with one more death having been registered, totalling 101 deaths associated with the disease to date – another patient died today, a 91-year-old with comorbidities.

So, excluding retrieved and death outcomes, the region currently has 710 active cases, of which 56 are imported and 654 are of local transmission. 66 people are hospitalized at the Dr. Nélio Mendonça Hospital (63 in Polyvalent Units and 3 in the Intensive Care Unit dedicated to COVID-19).

  1. How close is Madeira to going into lockdown again ? at least then there was no stupid time consuming restrictions like now it was simple stay at home go out for food shopping and excise.

      • Masks are useless. Social distancing will make your holiday difficult. There is increasing evidence that vaccines do not stop you getting infected, but reduce the severity of any infection you do get. However, the older you get the more the medical conditions more likely with advancing years increase your risk of becoming severely unwell despite being vaccinated. If you are obese, diabetic, have high blood pressure or heart disease your risks are greater. I would advise you to be particularly cautious about touching things like shop door handles on Madeira. Everyone is apparently masked all the time, but no doubt they fiddle with their masks and then put their germ-ridden hands on handles and items in shops.
        Madeira seems like a less safe place than Britain just now, assuming you are from the UK, thanks to our government making, for once, the sensible decision in the summer to reduce restrictions so that we could get more people infected whilst the weather was suited to this. Madeira made the wrong call and kept restrictions and is now seeing infections go up whilst the UK seems to be heading for a major reduction. If you are very frightened, I’d suggest you stay home, but, if you take the view that at 85 you need to have as rich a life as possible whilst you can, then I might say the opposite and say take the risk, as it’s not massively higher than in the UK.
        Than there is the unpredictability of travel restrictions. At 85, can you cope with that uncertainty?

  2. It’s the seasonal flu. The PCR test can’t make the difference from flu from Covid. That’s why WHO recommends to drop the PCR tests by end of this year.

    All this fuss is useless. The governments just wants to control people.

      • Exactly. The world hasn’t stopped before for normal flu, even if it’s as “deadly” as Covid. In Madeira, only 0,03% of a population of 250 000 people have died of Covid. That’s flu level mortality.

        It’s normal that old people with other health issues die. Of course, it’s sad, but that’s life. There’s no reason to panic about it.

  3. 103 cases in a day ! you could compare it to the UK (pop70 million) 40.000 new cases a day.
    Or with greater Tokyo in Japan (pop 38 million ) very worried because they have had 100 new cases in the last week !!!!!

    How do they do it ? well they never shake hands/ hug/ kiss on cheek, anyone they are not married to ! They always bow at a social distance and always normally wear masks (without being told ) if they suspect there is any chance they have an infection.
    Yes they may shake hands with foreigners out of politness, but I suspect they always go and wash their hands with disnfectant soap, as soon as possible. That and a healthy diet ( virtually sugar free) is why they live 10 years longer than UK citizens.
    They also closed the borders at the start to all non Japanese, opened last week to business people only ( If I assume fully jabbed and tested)

    • That’s an anti-parasitic treatment providing no defence against a VIRUS. Stuff claiming that ivermectin is beneficial for treating and preventing COVID-19 are not backed by credible scientific evidence.

  4. Some people now say that it is difficult to differentiate between flu and covid.
    OK.
    So that means that in the last years the flu was as much life treathening as covid.
    Right?
    Therefore, let’s wear masks, use alcohol gel or soap, get flu AND covid vaccins, lockdown when necessary, social distancing when possible.
    Do that against – choose – the flue, covid, or both.
    What more is there to discuss?

    • God help you. What kind of dystopia are you advocating? Humanity not touching each other or getting close to each other till the end of time. No smiling, no facial expressions, massive loss of body language via facial expressions until the end of time. I say until the end of time because that seems clearly to be implied in your post, unless you want to tell us, since flu (“=covid”) will be around forever, under what circumstances masks and distancing would end, please…
      It seems to me you have just destroyed your own argument. If you are saying that it doesn’t matter whether we call it flu or covid, then presumably our responses to “it” should be the same. So, therefore, please tell us how humanity managed to control flu (which is to be thought of in the same way as covid, you argue) throughout history without using masks and social distancing.
      What more is there to discuss, you ask, as if your solutions are either effective or without cost, economic, social or psychological. I think your views are simplistic, naive and driven by your blind acceptance of the fear agenda pushed by almost every government in the world. But I understand: you are terrified.
      And I am terrified too. By your thinking.
