In your weekly comment space on TVI24, Medina informed that the capital “is unable to make this advance” due to the epidemiological situation it is currently experiencing. “The number of cases exceeded” the level of 120 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, with the city entering “on alert status. In the last week, the number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants continued to progress, albeit at a slower pace, it means that Lisbon tomorrow, which is the day of the assessment, will not make progress in terms of deconfinement”, assured the mayor.
