“No new confirmed cases have been reported in Portugal since October 21”, totalling 944 since May 3, when the presence of the virus was detected in the country, with laboratory confirmation of five cases of human infection with the Monkeypox virus (VMPX).

The health authority states in a note published on the website that, “given the decrease in the number of new reported cases, as well as the fact that the outbreak is apparently in a phase of slowing down”, the weekly report on the VMPX will now be biweekly, “it may be readjusted according to the evolution of the outbreak”.
