I don't mind the short reuters-style articles. Long ones are obviously preferred. I find the news here appropriately neutral. On another news website, the Portugal Resident, you would get a longer article, including quotes of nonsense from covid deniers and info on where the latest anti-mask protests are currently being held (including the exact time and intersection). I prefer this news site, and appreciate its lack of an agenda.

I tend to agree with Jude. Most of the articles lack substance and the aim seems to be to fill the News page with these almost one-liners.
The emphasis has clearly shifted to property and tourism marketing. I read this publication less now and turn to other sources for information.

This is not an “article”. It’s just a “stub”. Why didn’t you add some analysis, interview doctors and other medical experts to suggest WHY percentages in ICU are increasing? There is a big streak of laziness running right through this publication.
