The President of the Republic visited Armação de Pêra, Silves, in the Algarve on 10 August, to show how safe it is to take a holiday at the current moment of the pandemic, noting that “the tide [of national and foreign tourists] is rising.”

“It is a good sign that there is no concern from people about
the health situation here, generally in the Algarve, in Silves and Armação de Pera,” said Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

Stating that he was surprised by the number of people he met on the beach, he said that “the tide is rising” for those who arrive in the Algarve, whether “they are Portuguese”, but also “the various English and French tourists”, that he met.

The President seemed to be hopeful about recent numbers relating to Covid-19 in the country, which he believes should contribute “to changes in the restrictive lists” of travel from some countries, and that “justice will be done to Portugal”.

Since the end of June, the President of the Republic has consitently visited the Algarve. Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa has already visited the municipalities of Albufeira, Vila Real de Santo António, Tavira, Loulé, Lagoa, Lagos and Silves. On 20 August he will be in Portimão.


It seems that all the countries on the list must have gave back handers to the English government as it don't make sense to put some of the countries on the list with there r rate don't understand why Portugal is not on the list
