Covid – 19 – Figures Steadily Increasing

Today’s epidemiological bulletin from the Regional Health Directorate confirms that thirteen SARS-CoV-2 infected patients are currently hospitalised at the Dr. Nélio Mendonça Hospital (12 in the dedicated Polyvalent Unit and one in Intensive Care).

Further to the sudden outbreak in Porto Santo (15), fourteen crew members aboard the NRP Douro, have also tested positive to Covid-19. Another vessel, NRP Sines, is currently stationed between the mainland and Madeira to respond to any incidents, and will remain in place for at least ten days.

The tally for today is 42 new cases.
