The president of the Porto and Northern Region tourism board (TPNP) has said 20 hotels in the city of Porto have closed in the first 10 days of November due to a lack of tourists because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This, Luís Pedro Martins said, represents 3,200 empty beds. Martins made an appeal to the Government to reinforce support measures for businesspeople in the hotel and restaurant sector, “so that entrepreneurs can keep their jobs and keep their activities ready to operate as soon as the [pandemic] eases".
