According to the Portuguese Ministry of Health (DGS), we always find the official, up-to-date data on this site:

The changes to the previous day are shown in brackets.

Officially infected persons show the authorities on 04.08.2020 currently 51,569 ( + 106 ) confirmed cases in Portugal. Up to now there are 1.738 ( +/- 0 ) deaths caused by the Corona Virus.

Furthermore, 446,342 ( + 1,149 ) persons are suspected to be infected. 37,111 ( + 127 ) Infected persons are already considered healthy again.

As of today, we are showing the current corona cases and number of infected persons by region in Portugal:

18,797 North ( + 17 )

26,389 Lisbon and Vale do Tejo ( + 66 )

4.465 Centre (+ 10 )

892 Algarve ( + 5 )

743 Alentejo ( + 7 )

168 Azores ( +/- 0 )

113 Madeira ( + 5 )

The worldwide extent of the spread of the coronavirus can be seen on the interactive map of Johns Hopkins University.

If we assume a population of around 450,000 people in the Algarve and take into account the 254 people still infected, the infection rate is 0.06%. This seems to be enough to drive the Algarve into economic ruin and to be classified as “not safe” by the British government.
