The preliminary demographic data released by the Regional Directorate of Statistics of Madeira (DREM), for the first six months of 2020 show that in the Autonomous Region of Madeira there were 485 more deaths than births (live births 883, deaths 1368).
For the same six-month period, four children died under the age of one and three stillborn births were recorded.
The number of weddings dropped severely between January and June 2020, with just 203 weddings taking place, 151 less than in the same period last year, representing a sharp decrease of 42.7%. However, lockdown and the pandemic can be seen as a contributory factor.
