Covid-19: New App

The Regional Directorate of Health (DRS) issued a statement this evening saying that those who are “Covid-19 positive,  or have been in contact with a positive case in the Autonomous Region of Madeira should use the app to monitor their situation, and therefore ignore all SMS messages sent by the Ministry of Health during their period of isolation or quarantine.” Therefore allowing people to take a much more active and responsible role during their confinement. 

The application through IASAÚDE and DRS, sends daily informative messages to those who are positive and those who have been in contact with a positive case, and the DRS stress that these messages should be adhered to at all times. 

Through the new electronic platform,, citizens can access information about the new isolation rules, clarify any doubts, request declarations and certificates related to COVID-19 in a simple and hassle-free way. 

The platform which came into force on the 7th of January, is available to all citizens, but some of its features are only reserved for users with a positive result and/or risk contacts, upon receipt of a message which includes a “PIN” (in the case of positive cases) code.
