The COVID-19 epidemic outbreak - Short-term and medium-term repercussions, and the responses and policies that must be adopted to address them

1. The COVID-19 epidemic outbreak confronting the country and the world naturally requires, as a priority, an appropriate set of prevention procedures, including health measures that must be strengthened. Public health services play a crucial role, accompanied at the same time by essential measures to enable the clinical response. The National Health Service must be strengthened, at all levels.

About the evolution of COVID-19 and the measures announced by the Government

1. Given the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak, PCP considers the implementation of a set of preventive measures to be of the utmost importance, bur reaffirms the rejection of alarmism that cause a climate of agitation and disproportionate fear.

The current situation in Portugal demands that we all follow the set of guidelines issued by the public health authority, without fueling speculative reports or adopting measures on the sidelines of those defined by the competent authorities.

The election results were translated in a parliamentary framework with a correlation of forces similar to the previous four-year period, despite changes in electoral expression between the political forces represented in Parliament.
