A message that has not been heard in the region of Venice, where the rate of reproduction of the virus is passed from 0.43 % to 1.63 %.

Coronavirus in Portugal

Anger in Portugal ! The decision of the United Kingdom to exclude the country from the list of safe countries for its nationals, it has created controversy in Portugal this weekend.

With this decision, any traveller arriving in Portugal from the 10th of July will have to follow the quarantine measures on arrival on british soil. The minister of foreign affairs has pointed out in particular that the cases were rare in the Algarve, a region that the British are many to visit in the summer.

Any gathering of over 10 persons is prohibited. Since 1 July, Portugal is split into three areas.

In the second area, which relates to Lisbon and its environs, we are talking about a state of "contingency". The collections are limited to 10 people and the shops close as early as 20h. Finally, in the third area, the containment is in effect, and the business limited to a maximum of 5 people.
