The Algarve saw its number of unemployed triple in May compared with a year ago as the coronavirus crisis kept foreign visitors away, wiping out thousands of seasonal jobs.

In Portugal as a whole, the total of those without jobs rose by 34% from a year earlier to nearly 409,000 people.

In the southern Algarve, famous for its beaches and golf courses, the total number of those out of work spiked to almost 28,000 in May from just over 9,000 in the same month of 2019.
