After more than a month, the LVT region registered 12,137 infected (36.13% of the country) and 383 dead (26.32%). This data shows an increase of 100.71% in the level of infected and 82.38% in the number of registered deaths.

Taking into account only the period between the end of the state of emergency and Thursday, the region recorded 6,090 infections (73.29% of the country) and 173 deaths (41.99%).

However, the North region has a higher percentage of deaths in the same period (49.51% of the country's total, corresponding to 204). In the May 3 bulletin this figure was 57.24% (597 dead), having dropped to 55% on June 4 (801 dead).

The percentage of infected people in the North in relation to the country's total has also been decreasing: it was 59.41% on May 3rd and 50.07% on June 4th.

On the other hand, the percentage of increase in cases and deaths in the North since the end of the state of emergency was 11.97% and 34.17%, respectively, well below the values ??recorded in Lisbon and Vale do Tejo.

On May 3, the Central region presented 13.63% of the cases reported in the country and 20% of the deaths, but a month later these percentages are already at 11.22% and 16.49% respectively. If the analysis is only related to the period since the end of the state of emergency, the Centre has only 3.89% of cases and 7.52% of deaths.
