Portugal slams UK decision not to list quarantine as 'absurd'

(CNN) – The Portuguese government has condemned the British government’s decision not to revoke it quarantine for people traveling from the mainland Portugal as “absurd” and “absurd,” say Britain has seven times more coronavirus cases than has happened.

Augusto Santos Silva, the country’s Foreign Minister, said Portugal was “very disappointed” to be excluded from the list of countries where travelers would be excluded from spending two weeks in isolation after arriving in Britain.

List of exceptions, issued by British government on Friday and will take effect on July 10, including 59 states and 14 British Foreign Territories.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4 on Friday, Santos Silva said: “We are very disappointed with the decision of the British authorities. We think that is unreasonable and unjust. This is very unreasonable.

“Britain has seven times more cases related to Covid-19 than Portugal, so we think this is not the way in which allies and friends are treated,” he added.

Although he acknowledged that Portugal had experienced several “specific outbreaks” of Covid-19 in Lisbon, the minister stressed that a popular destination among British tourists – such as the Algarve – was not a coronavirus hotspot.

António Costa, Prime Minister of Portugal, also said the Algarve is a safe place to spend this summer’s vacation.

In a tweet posted on Friday, Costa included a chart comparing the number of unfavorable Covid-19 cases in Britain with those in the Algarve, adding the words: “You are welcome to spend a safe vacation in the Algarve.”
Health authorities in Portugal have recorded 1,587 deaths from coronavirus so far in all settings. Based on Johns Hopkins University, 44,216 people have died of the virus in Britain.

According to British government data, around 2.5 million Britons traveled to Portugal last year.

According to the National Cancer Institute (Inca), about 30% of all cancers diagnosed in Brazil can be avoided through lifestyle changes. “Behavioral risk factors such as obesity and lack of physical activity are directly linked to the occurrence of breast cancer. That is why it is so important to develop healthy habits,” emphasizes the mastologist. The sporting event will take place on October 29, starting at 16:00, from Cais da Alphandega and will cover a 5 km route. Registration is open to the public at soucorredor.com.br.
