The Health Minister has warned that the number of people testing positive for Covid-19 in Portugal could climb by 50 percent to 3,000 cases in the coming days.

Marta Temido issued the warning yesterday as the number of new cases broke a new record by passing the 2,000 figure for the first time. She called on people to take extra precautions in order to avert her prediction, and justified the government’s decision to issue a state of calamity.


Stop testing, then. How many deaths have there been??
