The number of coronavirus cases rose in the past week, and the health minister said it could rise to 60,000 daily cases at the end of the month. Portugal currently has the highest rate in the world, but Marta Temido is ruling out a return of restrictions, saying it is time for individual responsibility.
Title festivities and tape burnings the same weekend, in the heat and inviting anyone to stay home, accelerated the transfer of the BA.5 version.
The end of masks was announced just two weeks ago, and the number of cases has since been reflected in the easing of measures, rising to around 10,000 cases per day.
It was 15 days ago. If, on the one hand, this is the most obvious justification given by experts for the particularly sharp rise in the northern region, on the other hand, the daily average of new cases in Portugal has tripled.
This week, the Directorate General of Democracy registered more than 30 thousand. But with the world’s highest infection rate currently in the country, the health minister adds that this is not the peak yet.
The minister acknowledges greater pressure on hospitals and a lack of response capacity for the SNS24 line. Marta Temedo says the operator is now strengthening the teams.
Even if the minister confirmed that the increase in injuries was expected when it was decided to lift the mandatory measures, imposing them again is not in the government’s plans.
On Wednesday, at the end of the day, the minister met with experts to review and adapt the strategy to combat the epidemic.
