I believe this is the first time we report that all cases are locally transmitted.
The Regional Health Directorate reveals that 12 new cases of covid-19 have been identified in the Region, all of which are locally transmitted, mostly associated with contacts of previously identified positive cases. In two situations, contacts are still under investigation.
In the daily bulletin, it is also mentioned that one of the cases concerns a child under the age of two years, with connection to the cases already identified in a nursery school in the municipality of Câmara de Lobos.
On the other hand, says the regional health authority, there are eight more recovered cases to report.
6 people are in hospital, one of those is in intensive care.
There are 166 active cases, of which 55 are imported cases identified in the context of surveillance activities implemented at Madeira Airport and 111 are cases of local transmission. Regarding the residence of active cases, 37 are non-residents and 129 are residents.
