"We will generically eliminate the time limitations on activities, and therefore both commerce, catering, and shows will be able to resume their normal hours, with a general limitation of everything being closed at 2am," said the head of Government at 'briefing' after the meeting of the Council of Ministers, which took place today at Palácio da Ajuda, in Lisbon.
António Costa also stated that the elimination of these limitations is combined with the "intensive use" of the digital certificate or negative tests, which are still necessary to enter the interior of restaurants on weekends and holidays, as well as to access tourist accommodation.
OK, the obligatory certificate was not approved yesterday. But according to Publico the further elimination of the limitations is dependent on the (rising) number of vaccinated people. This is blackmail!

When did we give up the right to become ill?
I used to be able to feel perfectly healthy and have a lunch out without having to prove I wasn't contagious.
Do we care about liberty, or are we going to keep letting bureaucrats dictate us into a Sanitary Apartheid?
They will keep funneling us towards vaccine passports and eventually a social credit score by curtailing our freedoms incrementally.
Now is the time to stand together and stand strong, because lost ground is incredibly difficult to regain.
The only way out is mass disobedience, while we learn to incorporate COVID into our disease ecosystem.
