After a week with very low numbers of newly infected people or even with zero cases recorded, Médio Tejo has more than a dozen positive cases. There are 11 new infections registered by the epidemiological report of the Public Health Unit of the Middle Tejo in the last 24 hours, bringing the cumulative total of positive cases since the beginning of the pandemic to 12 765 people who contracted the infection caused by SARS-Cov-2. These 11 cases on Tuesday are registered in Abrantes (1), Alcanena (1), Entroncamento (1), Ourém (2), Tomar (2) and Torres Novas (4).

Rt do Médio Tejo is at 0.8

The Middle Tejo numbers are on an upward trend, as in the country, largely because of the first phase of the deflation and Easter. According to Maria dos Anjos Esperança, coordinator of the Middle Tejo Public Health Unit, the region’s Rt is 0.8, that is, below the national level, but we cannot alleviate the precautions.
At this point, the public health doctor says that in the region the reported cases have been of community transmissions and with no connection between them, with no active outbreak.

Even so, Maria dos Anjos Esperança says that people have to restrain their spirits to walk on the terraces and in an open deflation, otherwise we will close again very soon. And he gave the example of a terrace he saw yesterday, in Tomar, with many people, which adds a risk and the conditions for the spread of the virus.

The USPMT coordinator says that we must all be aware that the virus is here to stay and that the vaccine does not remove it from our lives. In this way, it expects people to minimally comply with the rules of individual protection and distance to avoid new restrictions in our lives.
