António Costa cancels TV interview for health reasons

In a week full of criticism for the way the government is ‘protecting’ citizens through the economic crisis, António Costa has cancelled a television interview, for health reasons. He was to have been interviewed yesterday on air, writes tabloid Correio da Manhã, but cited ill-health for pulling out. This is the second time in recent months that the PM has been ‘indisposed’ for an engagement. He is expected to be back fulfilling appointments from today.
