Seventy old age people’s homes in Portugal have reported cases of covid-19, with 542 users and 2017 employees testing positive, the Secretary of State for Health said

In a press conference to update the state of the pandemic in Portugal, António Sales said that this number is equivalent to less than 3 percent of the total universe of nursing homes.

The situation of homes, he said, continues to be monitored by the Ministry of Health.


Problem is the HVAC systems in those homes. If not working properly, they will keep recirculating the air including the virus particles. Guaranteed infection!
