Does anyone know how we can get the names of people who have died in Portugal? I haven't heard from a friend in about 4 weeks despite me sending several emails.

almost 1900 confirmed cases are between 20 and 69 stop infecting each other and prevent unnecessary deaths. How many of those over 70 had underlying health conditions, publish that and stop exaggerating the problem for older people. The younger populous are spreading this awful virus.
