A total of 15 elderly people died from coronavirus at a care home in the city of Aveiro.

The city’s mayor said 77 other residents and 22 staff members had tested positive last week, and guaranteed all necessary preventive measures were taken, including creating a separate area for those infected.

The city has been critical of the national DGS health authority, saying it failed to send enough swabs to his municipality.

The mayor said there were currently no resources to test residents at other care homes.
