I would love just five minutes with the health Minister to give her a dose of reality as a retired MD.
I am almost seventy with multiple health issues and have not been able to get an SNS number after 3 months of persistent badgering.
I have just booked a flight to the US for the vaccine.
All these government proclamations are just theater. There will be no return to normal without enough immunizations to provide heard immunity. Shame on these inept politicians and shame on the passivity of the Portuguese people who don’t hold there politicians to a higher standard.
