A new national survey has estimated that around 1.4 million people in Portugal are informal carers.

According to the survey the number of informal carers was boosted during the pandemic because of the shutting down of social options, and claims caregivers should have more rights. The survey was conducted by the National Association of Informal Carers (ANCI) and the results were presented in Lisbon to mark Informal Caregiver Day.
