As for the Algarve and the Azores, today’s bulletin indicates that there is a decrease in the total number of cases in these regions “due to the need to correct the historical series and the real attribution of them to other health regions”.
In the Algarve the number of registered cases today is 879 (on Friday the number was 883) and in the Azores the number of registered cases today is 167 (on Friday the number was 168).

The number of people hospitalized is 375 in the last 24 hours, (six fewer than on Friday) while in intensive care there are now 40 people (minus one).
The data indicate that of the total number of fatalities, 868 are men and 869 are women.
