LISBON, Portugal — Health experts in Portugal say hospitalizations have leveled off but remain high.
Portugal’s 14-day cumulative coronavirus cases per 100,000 people is 684, according to the European Centre for Disease Control. That’s a key metric in measuring the pandemic’s spread. Portugal is eighth among 31 European countries tallied by the EU agency.
The nation of 10 million people has confirmed nearly 304,000 cases and more than 4,600 deaths. Health officials estimate about two-thirds of infections occur in family gatherings.
