The Prime Minister said today that the Government will "tighten up a little" and clarify the rules of movement, especially during Easter, and warned that April will be a "very dangerous" month in terms propagation of covid-19.

António Costa announced this step by the Government during the programme of Cristina Ferreira, on TV channel SIC, after being asked about how the state of emergency in Portugal would extend for another 15 days.

"We are going to adopt clearer measures so that people realize that during the Easter period they cannot really walk around and should stay in their permanent residence. I think we will have to tighten up a little, giving a clearer sign that it is not really the time to move from one place to another ", declared the Prime Minister.


Where are masks and sanitizers at supermarkets? Did they actually order some to protect the most vulnerable? Now delivery times from China go up to 2 weeks! But worried about people going for a walk on the beach (while maintaining distance) that is not infecting nobody...seems like a strategy with flaws?
