The Algarve has Covid-19 infection rates above the national average and is pushing Portugal closer to the red line of infection transferability | Público (PT)

While the country’s number of new cases per 100,000 people continues to decrease (65.9), the Algarve has a considerably higher rate of 112 new cases per 100,000 residents, according to Público.

The regions of Norte (53), Centro (49), Lisboa e Vale do Tejo (73), and Alentejo (72) are all noticeably lower than the Algarve.

Health authorities are concerned high infection rates in the Algarve may push the country past the transmissibility (Rt) of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus greater than 1, a red line the government designated as an indicator to walk back the reopening of retail, schools and other activities.
