The positive variation in relation to 2019 is due mainly to the increase in the number of deaths of people aged 75 and over (+ 1,597). The total number of deaths exceeded that of 2019 on March 20 and that of 2018 on March 30 (according to the latest data collected on May 5). The comparison between deaths in 2020 and the average of deaths in 2018 and 2019, per day between March 2 and April 26, indicates a change in pattern in mid-March (the first death attributed to COVID-19 was registered on March 16). 51 municipalities with confirmed cases of COVID-19 disease per 10 thousand inhabitants above the national value On May 6, 2020, in Portugal, for every 10 thousand inhabitants there were 26.0 confirmed cases of COVID-19, which represents an increase of 20% compared to April 22 (between 22 and 7 April there was a 70% increase). The number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 disease per 10 thousand inhabitants was above the national value in 51 municipalities. In the Norte region, 36 municipalities registered a value above the national average, and a set of contiguous municipalities in the Metropolitan Area of Porto stood out, with more than 40 confirmed cases per 10 thousand inhabitants Valongo, Matosinhos, Maia, Gondomar, Porto, Santo Tirso and Vila Nova de Gaia. Despite this differentiation, the estimated location coefficient for March 25th and May 6th suggests a decrease in territorial concentration of cases, i.e., a progressive spatial dissemination throughout the country. - 60 - 40 - 20 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 st st March 1 to 31 st th April 1 to 25 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 27 29 31 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 No. Difference between deaths in 2020 and average deaths in 2018 and 2019 per day
