Thanks for all your comments.
As this is a "free" country I am writing my opinion, which clearly has struck a few cords.

I have lived in Portugal for 30 years, having moved from Ireland.

Wishing you all the best with your mask wearing as I assume the commenters are old. Take extra care not to come in contact with the young and strong. You have my sympathy.

Don't forget to thank your American friends for voting Joe Biden.

What the hell do the Portuguese government expect to happen? The teachers have been programmed to spread it!!

Why not just close the schools? Most of the pupils will end up as waiters anyway.

Or simply poison every child in school with a vaccine cocktail? Then they can continue running around the sports field wearing a toxic mask knowing the government has listened to the experts at WHO. Basically saving this generation from a deadly virus which is now lurking everywhere so we're told.

Perhaps our creators will soon end our misery with a big asteroid smashing into the earth? Let's all manifest this ending before humanity eats itself.
