The country is” entering a phase based on the responsibility of everyone, ” the Portuguese government said.
In Portugal, the government has lifted most of the quarantine restrictions — the remaining rules will be the responsibility of its citizens. This was reported by The Guardian on Thursday, September 23.
“Since most of the restrictions imposed by the law are disappearing, we are entering a phase based on the responsibility of everyone,” Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said.
The country will continue to use protective masks in public transport, at major events, in nursing homes, in hospitals, shopping centers, and hypermarkets.
At the moment, 8.5 million people have been vaccinated in Portugal — this is 83.4% of the total population.
In addition, from October 1, nightclubs and bars that have been closed since March 2020 will be restored, but visitors will have to carry vaccination certificates or a negative test for coronavirus.
Earlier, the WHO said that Delta has almost displaced the remaining strains of coronavirus. The” Indian ” version of COVID has become stronger, even more contagious, and it intercepts other strains and viruses, the organization noted.
