Madeira registers today, the last day of the year, 1,157 new cases of covid-19, with a new daily maximum of infections by the SARS-CoV-2 virus being reached. Only 64 of the new cases were imported, with the remaining 1,093 from local transmission.
Despite this significant increase, which means that 4,022 cases are active, there is practically no change, at least for now, in the number of infected patients hospitalized at Hospital Dr. Nélio Mendonça. This Friday, 34 people are hospitalized, three of them in the Intensive Care Unit dedicated to covid-19.
But on this last day of 2021, there are also 257 recovered cases to be reported by the Regional Directorate of Health.
