Confinement will last a month and schools with students up to 12 years old will remain open, says Costa
The prime minister spoke to journalists after the meeting with experts at Infarmed ended about the evolution of the pandemic in the country.
António Costa started by saying that the country has a “very strong growth dynamic” that must be stopped and that this “is only possible with confinement”, which, in this case, will have a “one-month horizon”.
Although experts have differing opinions on the best measures for schools, the prime minister assured that schools with students up to the age of 12 will remain open.
The prime minister reiterates a call for compliance with health recommendations, because the numbers continue to rise: “Today we are going to have numbers above the 7,000 newly infected,” he added.
