Algarve’s hospitals and health centres welcome 136 training doctors

Algarve hospitals call on retired doctors and nurses to help fight against Covid-19

Concerns are mounting due to the “exhaustion” that several health professionals are experiencing after months battling the virus in a region which even before the pandemic struggled with a chronic lack of human resources.
