Parliament is poised to debate and vote on invoking the 14th State of Emergency today.

The measure will come into force at 00:00 on the 1st of April, and last for another 15 days.

On Tuesday experts met at drugs watchdog Infarmed’s headquarters to discuss the epidemiological situation in Portugal, and concluded that, for now, the situation is stable, even though the transmission rate (Rt) indicates a tendency to grow. The State of Emergency mechanism is expected to keep being renewed at least until May.
