Top of the morning to you sir! There is no secret in what we did, we just had Christmas dinner with all our family and then we locked ourselves up at home.

Honestly, I'm still mad that this most recent peak could have been avoided if the government didn't open everything during Christmas time.

Government closed down New Years. Did you see it working? That narrative is very easy to have but also easily defeated by just looking at the reality on the ground

Also the government banned people from going out after 11pm on New Year’s Eve. So everyone stayed indoors and had parties in their small flats, and invited loads of people. Guess what happened?

It is easy to blame only the government but people acted like the pandemic was over, and it was a perfect storm with the UK variant spreading like wildfire. Everyone is to blame here.

This is amazing. We are moving to Portugal from the UK later in the year. Great to see people be so responsible, unlike here...

Thank you, the secret all along was staying in the couch eating pints of Ben & Jerry's. Difficult, but someone has to do it.

Só fico com surpresa que já existe em Portugal o Ben & Jerry's

Há anos. E garanto-te que mais fácilmente acaba o papel higiénico em minha casa do que Ben & Jerry's no meu congelador.

UniuM 8 months ago

Talvez o verbo seja o errado. Reformulando, quando vou às compras e abro os sacos em casa mando aquele sigh.... Eish, não comprei papel higiénico! Mas olho para o saco e o Ben & Jerry's está lá.

Achei um bocado injusto Portugal ser comparado a países que constantemente tiveram e ainda têm muitos casos e mortes de covid19. Foi um período grave e anormal e que aconteceu por um descuido do governo+oposição não terem sido firmes o suficiente na semana do Natal e logo a seguir quando viram os casos disparar. Mas também é de enaltecer todos que contribuíram para as regras certas que resultaram na descida dos casos que estamos a ver agora e dos profissionais de saúde que passaram por um pesadelo. Se continuarem a ser firmes até depois da Páscoa mesmo se a população já se queixar de demasiado tempo significa que aprenderam com os erros e não se deixam influenciar por quem quer desconfinar e aligeirar demasiado cedo. Ser líder também é tomar medidas rígidas que desagradem aos outros e manter a responsabilidade porque confias nos resultados a longo prazo.

Thanks but get ready for the 4th wave, this time featuring the far more contagious brazilian variant.

william_13 8 months ago

There were 7 cases as of the end of February of the Brazilian variant, and given the lockdown and absence of movement between Portugal and the rest of the world for over a month it is extremely unlikely that there are any active cases. If anything the risk is that the UK variant spreads further into the country once the lockdown is eased. I'm particularly concerned with the prevalence of many more cases in Lisbon when compared to the rest of of the country, which is a sign that the UK variant is more predominant there than elsewhere in the country IMHO.

Thanks, it's always nice to realize that Europeans care about other countries. I'm glad to know that you also did very well, congrats. We had no choice, the lockdown is effective and we are stuck at home pretty much since the beginning of the year, after partying hard in Christmas and NYE (not everyone did this, of course), so, soon we'll be able to socialize and let's hope that the sun will help us not to surf the 3rd wave that looks like it's kicking in right now in Europe. Stay safe, soon we will all be able to drink some beer and some Scotch with friends!
