Meeting yesterday, Friday, the Leiria district civil protection commission (CDPCL) confirms the worsening of the epidemiological situation in the district, which has resulted in an increase in the number of high and very high risk municipalities.

On Friday, the Council of Ministers reassessed the level of risk of municipalities at the national level on the basis of the number of new cases accumulated in 14 days. Figueiró dos Vinhos and Porto de Mós went from moderate to very high risk, while Batalha, Caldas da Rainha, Castanheira de Pera and Óbidos “went” to high risk.

According to information provided by groups in health centers, the increase in Covid-19 cases in recent days has had “a particular impact on the social and family environment,” the CDPCL said in a press release.

The municipalities in turn reiterated their willingness to collaborate in building the capacity of the authorities and public health services to “conduct epidemiological investigations, monitor patient contacts with Covid -19 and monitor people under active surveillance”, as well as for the preparation and operation of the vaccination campaign, with the provision of means and resources at the municipal level.
