Cases are scientifically meaningless, based as they are on an inappropriate and unreliable test. It's not unusual for annual flu deaths in Portugal to be over 2000. Covid is nothing unusual except in terms of the premeditated and organised criminality behind the governmental and corporate media response.

"In the whole of Portugal, the number of new cases since Friday was 425, less than what has been reported in recent days. "

The number of new cases and deaths reported always falls at the weekend so I would not seek consolation from this.

The reality is that the reported daily averages for the last 2 weeks and the previous 2 weeks have shot up:
To today (28/9) New cases 674 Deaths 6
To 14/9 New cases 470 Deaths 4

Unfortunately, according to the DGS, there are currently 659 people hospitalized of which 98 are in ICUs. Only 1 week ago there were 518 of which 61 were occupying ICU beds.
