Political correctness ,what a shame that people have to pay with their lives,history is going to lay this catastrophic event on the governments inability to take the right actions timeously ( isolation) this because of greed and short term savings at the cost of human lives and the long term future ,this is not only applicable to Portugal but to most governments worldwide, call a spade a spade if its indeed a spade ,you should have already taken drastic steps a while ago how are you going to stop it now? You and the European government should be ashamed and be brought to book for negligence ,and treated with less respect than comin criminals. What a utter shame and disgrace !
