The total number of positive cases of Covid-19 in Madeira rose today from 64 to 83, following the announcement of 19 more infections confirmed in the last 24 hours. (16 in Câmara de Lobos, 1 in Funchal and 2 on Porto Santo Island).
The Funchal case relates to a person who was infected in Câmara de Lobos, and is a public service employee.
The announcement was made a few moments ago by the vice president of IASAÚDE, Bruna Gouveia.
Although many leading dignitaries have lent their support to the parish, the general population has been less forgiving. Fear is rippling through the island, as today a higher number of mask wearers has been observed.
