Cyberattack: hospital continues to recover

Porto Santo, where the President woos voters today

The president of the Regional Government, Miguel Albuquerque, continues his charm offensive in Porto Santo today, visiting two new public investments this morning. Remember, the Regional elections are just three weeks away – one wonders how many sparkling new “public investments” will be found before then?

At 10:30 am, the president will visit the rehabilitation works of the local Tennis Complex, a contract awarded to the Tecnovia Madeira/Farrobo consortium, for the value of €696,000.00 + VAT, making a total of €849,120.00.

At 11:30 am, the president will visit the new Vila Baleira Urban Park, built on the site where the campsite operated for around 40 years, an investment of €695,000, which offers a ‘boat house’, which will be operated as a bar/cafeteria, toilets, picnic/leisure areas, a sandy playground, and a beach volleyball court.

Cyberattack: recovery operation continues

SESARAM announced yesterday afternoon, in a statement, that “the operation to restore equipment and access to all clinical and non-clinical services continues”.

As normality has not been fully restored after the cyberattack, the regional service reiterates the two appeals that have been made: that users who go to a Regional Health Service (SESARAM) health unit carry the information they have in their possession and those who use the SNS app to use it for their usual medication.

A new, vastly improved “search” facility has been introduced allowing readers to search (box in the sidebar above) on any word or phrase used in any of the posts over the last sixteen years. Previously the search facility only returned matches on headings rather than the entire content. It remains to be seen whether this will slow the blog down – fingers crossed! If it works it should move the blog even further ahead of the increasing number of imitators, providing a huge resource for visitors and residents.
