The Government estimates that the number of new cases of people infected with Covid-19 could reach about 4,000 daily in the coming weeks, doubling the trend of almost 2,000 infected, warned the Minister of Health today.

“[…] We have forecasts that go up to mid-July and that put us already with a number of new cases in excess of 4,000 and with a number of admissions to hospital in excess of 800 and the use of intensive care in excess of 150”, stressed Marta Temido this evening, in an interview with TVI.

Marta Temido said "At this pace of growth, in 15 days, we will double the number of cases, that is, instead of having the 2,000 we have today, we will have around 4,000, with regional variations, but we will tend to double the number of cases throughout the country”
