Interesting how nearly every article or update on the Covid situation in this country is commented by people who live outside Portugal, anxious to spread the hoax/conspiracy theories.
So sad to note the consistently high number of deaths in Portugal. It is always heart-breaking to lose a family member or a dear friend, especially in these difficult times. Condolences to all who have suffered a loss.

All based on PCR tests which, scientifically proven, are not good. Everyone is blamed for Corona as the cause of death while they are already suffering from other diseases such as cancer, the flu or just being very old. In the meantime, the hospitality industry, arts, and middle class are being destroyed by people with job security such as politicians. While their salaries are paid by those same free entrepreneurs. In addition, the politicians and advisers at the helm all have lines to people with interests in the pharmaceutical industry. The logic of the policy is completely lost, so there are other interests at play.
