The extreme risk of infection occurs when a municipality has a cumulative incidence of 14 days above 960 cases of infection per 100,000 inhabitants.

In municipalities at very high risk, that is, with an incidence of between 480 and 959.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, there is an increase from three to five in a week. Penamacor (741), Penedono (583), Ponte da Barca (568), Redondo (631) and Vila Nova da Barquinha (53) are the municipalities now at very high risk of infection.

Also on the rise are the municipalities at high risk (between 240 and 479.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days), as the bulletin now counts 24 municipalities in this category, whereas in the previous report there were 18.

According to the bulletin, between 120 and 239.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days are 58 municipalities, eight more than in the previous week.

With an incidence of zero cases, there are now 23 municipalities, two less than the one registered by the DGS seven days ago.
