Portugal has today recorded a total of 1,135 covid-19-related deaths, nine more than on Saturday, and 27,581 infected, another 175, according to the epidemiological bulletin released today by the General Directorate of Health.

In comparison with Saturday's data, which recorded 1,126 deaths, today there was an increase in deaths of 0.8%.

Regarding the number of confirmed cases of infection with the new coronavirus (27,581), data from the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) show that there are 175 more cases than on Saturday (27,406), representing an increase of 0.6%.

The North region is the one with the highest number of deaths (648), followed by the region of Lisbon and the Tagus Valley (243), the Center (216), the Algarve (13), the Azores (14) and the Alentejo that records a case, advances the epidemiological situation report, with data updated until midnight on Friday, keeping the Autonomous Region of Madeira with no record of deaths.


I am from Central region of Portugal. I do keep a track of the cases with special attention to central region. And I found discrepancies in DGS data:
RELATÓRIO DE SITUAÇÃO 10/05: Centro: 3581 casos confirmados (Aveiro:308, Ílhavo:112, Ovar:625).
RELATÓRIO DE SITUAÇÃO 09/05: Centro: 3581 casos confirmados (Aveiro:306, Ílhavo:112, Ovar:614).

How is it possible? If cases in Aveiro and Ovar showed a rise, then how come central region on both the days remain the same?
Just my observation. I do not know how DGS is managing the data !!
