The Portuguese Government considers that Germany’s decision to veto the entry of travelers from the Portuguese country due to the high presence of coronavirus mutations is “useless”, because Portugal is already “self-confined.”

“We regret Germany’s decision to prohibit the entry of Portuguese on non-essential trips. More than anything, it is a useless decision, given the self-confinement that Portugal had already decided, with a sense of responsibility,” the Foreign Ministry said in a published message. on your Twitter profile.

Portugal is one of the countries that are banned from entering Germany from this Saturday, along with the United Kingdom, South Africa, Brazil and Ireland.

The Portuguese country is being especially affected by the British variant, which in Lisbon, where hospitals are collapsed and the numbers soaring, already has a prevalence of 50% in infections.

Overwhelmed by a harsh third wave, Portugal will be prohibiting the exit of Portuguese from the national territory from tomorrow, with few exceptions, and will re-establish controls at the land border with Spain.

In addition, it established sanitary restrictions for flights from European Union countries depending on their incidence, which for those that exceed 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants (such as Spain) is mandatory to present negative CRP in the previous 72 hours and keep 14 days quarantine upon arrival.

For a second group of countries with between 150 and 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, which is Germany, requires only one PCR with a negative result.

Since the pandemic began, Portugal has accumulated 11,886 deaths and 698,583 positives from covid, and in recent days it has registered records of more than 300 deaths and 16,000 daily infections.
