Second Suspected Case of Coronavirus

The Institute of Health Administration, IP-RAM has confirmed that a second suspected case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Madeira is under investigation.

A public statement says that the patient is from Italy and has been taken to to the Dr Nélio Mendonça Hospital. The young woman will remain in hospital isolation, and biological samples will be collected for analysis. Further details will be released once the laboratory results are known.

As of yesterday, hospitalised patients can receive two visitors a day.  A measure that SESARAM hope will reduce the chances of the coronavirus from spreading should it affect the island.
