Covid-19: Portugal Update: 16 November

Portugal has today recorded the highest number of daily deaths from Covid-19, accounting for 91 more deaths in the last 24 hours and a further 3,996 new cases of infection, according to the bulletin of the Directorate-General for Health ( DGS).

The number of hospital admissions for covid-19 exceeded, for the first time, 3,000, standing at 3,040.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Portugal has recorded a total of 3,472 deaths and 255,672 cases of infection with the new coronavirus, with the North region continuing to be the most affected both in the number of deaths (44) and in new cases (2,063).

According to the DGS, in relation to confirmed and recovered cases (over 3,560), today's values ??result from a change in the data analysis system, with the daily difference in these fields being calculated in relation to the data from the previous day.

The bulletin also indicates that of the 91 deaths, the highest value in nine months of a covid pandemic, 44 were recorded in the North region, 33 in the Lisbon and Vale do Tejo region, eleven in the Central region and three in the Alentejo.

Most Portuguese are honest People who use COMMON SENSE! The WHO and CDC both admit they have NOT isolated CV-19, so HOW can U test for it? How can Medical Mafia Officials & Corrupt Politicians prove its so deadly? Maybe they're using Seasonal Flu to advance their sinister NWO Agenda? U got to THINK....while it's still legal. ????

I was diagnosed with covid in porto and I must say the health system is a mess. I got the virus , had symptoms etc, I called the SNS number , they sent me the next day to a doctor/Clinic for a Covid Test, I got the result 3 days later saying I was positive. The clinic said, stay home for 2 weeks. That was it. No contact tracing, no word about shielding, they didnt even ask me who I live with , where I live , Note, I have 2 Other room mates here in Porto, I work in a restaurant/ terrace , they didnt even ask where I worked, I did not go to work , but I could have just continued and told Nobody. I take the metro every day, go to shops, supermarkets etc etc. thats a Glaring problem in Portugal, Nobody in the SNS knows or cares after you test Positive as long as its Mild Covid, where you have been, who you are in contact with. Also, it took 3 Days to get the results of the PCR test. VERY slow and slack repsonse in My Opinion. AlSO, I know lots of people in porto, who got covid, tested positive and continued working as they needed the money and told Nobody. Its easy here to just get away with it and ignore the situation.

Another record number of Portuguese corpses. Unless the Govt agrees to investigate UBI treatment it will get much much worse. The same applies inthe UK, where nigh 609 deaths today was also a sharp increase. I have the only UBI system in Portugal, approved by the FDA for emergency treatment. But one example isn’t enough. I am calling for a rigorous clinical trial of this intervention, which has killed every virus where it has been applied, often within hours of the application. Some 60,000 applications have proved it is safe, the latest ttested on human blood and blood products successfully. The SARS CoV 2 virus was eliminated.

If it's so bad then go back to your kingdom along with all the immigrants... surely must be better there after all that's why you all ended up in Portugal in the first place.

I JUST WANT TO WARN ABOUT ECONOMIC HARDSHIP THAT FOLLOWS THIS PANDEMIC. SOMETIMES, I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS REASON. 12000 PEOPLE WERE GIVEN NATIONALITIES AND MORE 12000 HAVE NO DOCUMENTS. WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO GET A BIG WORKFORCE THAT CAN DRIVE THE ECONOMY UP? LOOK AT THE MANNERISM OF SEF OFFICIALS, TRYING TO MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO GET THIS DOCUMENT AS IF THEY ARE DOING YOU A FAVOUR. THEY ARE NOT DOING ANY IMMIGRANT A FAVOUR BUT PORTUGUESE GOVERNMENT. THE EARLIER THEY REALISED IT THE BETTER FOR THEM. THE POTENTIAL OF THE COUNTRY LIES ON OUR HANDS, THE IMMIGRANTS. THINK ABOUT IT, CARALHOS.

WELL, IT IS ACTUALLY A SIGN OF A FAILED HEALTH SYSTEM. I HAVE BEEN HAMMERING ON THIS FOR A LONG TIME. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD TRY AND DOCUMENT IMMIGRANTS. WHAT'S THE NEED OF ACCEPTING THEM WHEN YOU CANNOT PROVIDE FOR THEM. AS SOON AS YOUR STATUS IS NEGATIVE, YOU HAVE NO ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE UNLESS YOU ARE DYING OR ABOUT TO DIE, THEN THE AMBULANCE WILL COME. SOMETIMES, I THINK IT IS JUST A FUN FOR THEM NOTHING MORE. SECONDLY, IF YOU GO TO THE CLINICS , THEY WILL TELL YOU THERE ARE ONLY 10 VACANCIES AVAILABLE. OTHERS CAN GO HOME TILL ANOTHER TWO OR THREE DAYS TIME. WHAT A NONSENSE IN AN ADVANCED COUNTRY LIKE PORTUGAL ????????
