Figures diverge between IASaúde and the Directorate-General for Health
The vice president of IASaúde, Bruna Gouveia, indicated the reason why the numbers put forward by the Directorate-General for Health (43) and IASaúde (39) do not coincide in relation to the number of positive cases by covid-19, in Madeira.
According to Bruna Gouveia, the data reported by DGS does, in fact, relate to the Autonomous Region of Madeira, but these “come from information systems and are linked to people who are not in Madeira”, meaning that there are currently four Madeirans infected in mainland Portugal or outside the country.
The Minister of Health, Marta Temido, had already put forward an explanation for this discrepancy, since the cases that DGS attributed to the Portuguese who were abroad (for example, crew members and cruise ship passengers) had been redistributed. regions of origin or residence.
